Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute confi guration

    Which of the two possible isomers an enantiomer is (i.e., whether it is the right- or left-handed isomer).

  • acetal

    A functional group characterized by two alkoxy (OR) groups connected to the same carbon atom.Acetals can be used as protecting groups for aldehydes or ketones.

  • activated complex (transition state)

    The particular arrangement of atoms found at the top of the potential-energy barrier as a reaction proceeds from reactants to products. (Section 14.5)

  • Anomeric carbon

    The hemiacetal or acetal carbon of the cyclic form of a carbohydrate

  • atomic mass unit (amu)

    A unit of measure equivalent to 1 g divided by Avogadro’s number.

  • concentration

    The quantity of solute present in a given quantity of solvent or solution. (Section 4.5)

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond formed between two atoms by sharing one or more pairs of electrons.

  • desulfurization

    The conversion of a thioacetal into an alkane in the presence of Raney nickel.

  • electrocyclic reaction

    A pericyclic process in which a conjugated polyene undergoes cyclization. In the process, one p bond is converted into a s bond, while the remaining p bonds all change their location. The newly formed s bond joins the ends of the original p system,thereby creating a ring.

  • fossil fuels

    Coal, oil, and natural gas, which are presently our major sources of energy. (Section 5.8)

  • fracking

    The practice in which water laden with sand and other materials is pumped at high pressure into rock formations to release natural gas and other petroleum materials. (Section 18.4)

  • graft copolymer

    A polymer that contains sections of one homopolymer that have been grafted onto a chain of the other homopolymer.

  • Keq

    A term that describes the position of equilibrium for a reaction: Keq = 3H3O+ 4 3A- 4 3HA4 3H2O4

  • law of definite proportions

    A law that states that the elemental composition of a pure substance is always the same, regardless of its source; also called the law of constant composition. (Section 1.2)

  • miscible

    Two liquids that can be mixed with each other in any proportion.

  • Peptide bond

    The special name given to the amide bond formed between the a-amino group of one amino acid and the a-carboxyl group of another amino acid

  • Radical

    Any chemical species that contains one or more unpaired electrons.

  • significant figures

    The digits that indicate the precision with which a measurement is made; all digits of a measured quantity are significant, including the last digit, which is uncertain. (Section 1.5)

  • solubility-product constant (solubility product)1Ksp2

    An equilibrium constant related to the equilibrium between a solid salt and its ions in solution. It provides a quantitative measure of the solubility of a slightly soluble salt. (Section 17.4)

  • Wavelength (l)

    The distance between consecutive peaks on a wave
