Full solutions for Living by Chemistry | 2nd Edition
Rainwater that has become excessively acidic because of absorption of pollutant oxides, notably SO3, produced by human activities. (Section 18.2)
An ion with a net negative charge. (2.5)
A rule that determines the order in which orbitals are filled by electrons. Specifically, the lowest energy orbital is filled first.
The distance between the nuclei of two bonded atoms in a molecule. (9.4)
A molecule containing an !OH group and a !CN group bonded to the same carbon.
A conformation about a carboncarbon single bond in which the atoms or groups on one carbon are as close as possible to the atoms or groups on an adjacent carbon.
From the Greek meaning electron loving. Any species that can accept a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond; alternatively, a Lewis acid.
heat of combustion
The heat given off during a reaction in which an alkane reacts with oxygen to produce CO2 and water.
The equilibrium established between reactant and product substances that are all in the same phase. (Section 15.4)
A type of carbocation rearrangement that involves the migration of a hydride ion (H-).
The short-range attractive forces operating between the particles that make up the units of a liquid or solid substance. These same forces also cause gases to liquefy or solidify at low temperatures and high pressures. (Chapter 11: Introduction)
An abbreviated way to draw structural formulas in which vertices and line endings represent carbons
The intermediateformed during oxymercuration.
metathesis (exchange) reaction
A reaction in which two substances react through an exchange of their component ions: AX + BY ¡ AY + BX. Precipitation and acid–base neutralization reactions are examples of metathesis reactions. (Section 4.2)
Two liquids that can be mixed with each other in any proportion.
A polymer of amino acids that has a molecular weight of less than 10,000. (Section 24.7)
retro Diels-Alder reaction
The reverse of a Diels-Alder reaction, achieved at high temperature. A cyclohexene derivative is converted into a diene and a dienophile.
Secondary (2°) amine
An amine in which nitrogen is bonded to two carbons and one hydrogen
An ether(R!O!R) where the two R groups are notidentical.
A carbocation in which the positive charge is on one of the carbons of a carbon-carbon double bond.
