In IR spectroscopy as well as UV-VIS spectroscopy, a plot that measures the percent transmittance or absorption as a function of frequency.
acetoacetic ester synthesis
A threestep process that converts an alkyl halide into a methyl ketone with the introduction of three new carbon atoms.
Specific site on a heterogeneous catalyst or an enzyme where catalysis occurs. (Section 14.7)
An organic compound that has an NR2 group attached to a carbonyl. (Section 24.4)
The strain that arises when a bond angle is either compressed or expanded compared to its optimal value.
A negatively charged ion. (Section 2.7)
The basic unit of an element that can enter into chemical combination. (2.2)
In mass spectrometry, the tallest peak in the spectrum, which is assigned a relative value of 100%.
beta (b) position
The position immediately adjacent to an alpha (a) position.
A copolymer in which the different homopolymer subunits are connected together in one chain.
The area of chemistry concerned with the speeds, or rates, at which chemical reactions occur. (Chapter 14: Introduction)
A drawing style in which none of the bonds are drawn. Groups of atoms are clustered together when possible. For example, isopropanol has two CH3 groups, both of which are connected to the central carbon atom, shown like this: (CH3)2CHOH.
An ordered crystalline region in the solid state of a polymer. Also called a crystallite.
A symbol used to show the redistribution of valence electrons in resonance contributing structures or reactions, symbolizing movement of two electrons
Removal of !H and !X from adjacent carbons; a type of b-elimination
free induction decay
In NMR spectroscopy, a complex signal which is a combination of all of the electrical impulses generated by each type of proton.
Finely powdered palladium metal deposited on solid calcium carbonate that has been specially modifi ed with lead salts. Its particular use is as a catalyst for the reduction of an alkyne to a cis alkene
The specifi c rotation of a mixture of enantiomers divided by the specifi c rotation of the enantiomerically pure substance (expressed as a percent). Optical purity is numerically equal to enantiomeric excess, but experimentally determined.
A pericyclic reaction in which one s bond is formed at the expense of another.
Two objects that are identical.
