Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • alkanes

    Compounds of carbon and hydrogen containing only carbon–carbon single bonds. (Sections 2.9 and 24.2)

  • amphoteric oxides and hydroxides

    Oxides and hydroxides that are only slightly soluble in water but that dissolve in either acidic or basic solutions. (Section 17.5)

  • calorimetry

    The experimental measurement of heat produced in chemical and physical processes. (Section 5.5)

  • carbides.

    Ionic compounds containing the C2 22 or C42 ion. (22.3)

  • Carboxylic acid

    A compound containing a carboxyl, !COOH, group.

  • catalyst

    A substance that changes the speed of a chemical reaction without itself undergoing a permanent chemical change in the process. (Section 14.7)

  • chair conformation

    The lowest energy conformation for cyclohexane, in which all bond angles are fairly close to 109.5° and all hydrogen atoms are staggered.

  • configuration

    The 3D spatial orientation of the groups connected to a chirality center (R or S ) or of the groups in a stereoisiomeric alkene (E or Z).

  • electron shell

    A collection of orbitals that have the same value of n. For example, the orbitals with n = 3 (the 3s, 3p, and 3d orbitals) comprise the third shell. (Section 6.5)

  • ferromagnetism

    A form of magnetism in which unpaired electron spins align parallel to one another. (Section 23.1)

  • free radical

    A substance with one or more unpaired electrons. (Section 21.9)

  • fuel cell

    A voltaic cell that utilizes the oxidation of a conventional fuel, such as H2 or CH4, in the cell reaction. (Section 20.7)

  • Furanose

    A fi ve-membered cyclic form of a monosaccharide.

  • heterogeneous catalyst

    A catalyst that does not dissolve in the reaction medium.

  • hole

    A vacancy in the valence band of a semiconductor, created by doping. (Section 12.7)

  • Prostaglandin

    A member of the family of compounds having the 20-carbon skeleton of prostanoic acid

  • reducing agent, or reductant

    The substance that is oxidized and thereby causes the reduction of some other substance in an oxidation–reduction reaction. (Section 20.1)

  • solution

    A mixture of substances that has a uniform composition; a homogeneous mixture. (Section 1.2)

  • vinylic

    The carbon atoms of a carbon-carbon double bond.

  • Zaitsev’s rule

    A rule stating that the major product of a b-elimination reaction is the most stable alkene; that is, it is the alkene with the greatest number of substituents on the carboncarbon double bond
