Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • accuracy.

    The closeness of a measurement to the true value of the quantity that is measured. (1.8)

  • alkylthio group

    An SR group.

  • asymmetric stretching

    In IR spectroscopy, when two bonds are stretching out of phase with each other.

  • combustion reaction.

    A reaction in which a substance reacts with oxygen, usually with the release of heat and light, to produce a flame. (4.4)

  • coupling (of radicals)

    A radical process in which two radicals join together and form a bond.

  • covalent bond.

    A bond in which two electrons are shared by two atoms. (9.4)

  • Crown ether

    A cyclic polyether derived from ethylene glycol and substituted ethylene glycols.

  • degenerate

    Having the same energy.

  • 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)

  • heterogeneous catalyst

    A catalyst that is in a different phase from that of the reactant substances. (Section 14.7)

  • isotactic

    A polymer in which the repeating units contain chirality centers which all have the same configuration.

  • lattice points

    Points in a crystal all of which have identical environments. (Section 12.2)

  • lone pair

    A pair of unshared, or nonbonding, electrons.

  • mass spectrometer

    A device inwhich a compound is first vaporized and convertedinto ions, which are then separated anddetected.

  • mass-to-charge ratio(m/z)

    Thedetermining factor by which ions are separatedfrom each other in mass spectrometry.

  • osmotic pressure

    The pressure that must be applied to a solution to stop osmosis from pure solvent into the solution. (Section 13.5)

  • oxirane

    A cyclic ether containing a three-membered ring system. Also called an epoxide.

  • Resonance in NMR spectroscopy

    The absorption of electromagnetic radiation by a precessing nucleus and the resulting “fl ip” of its nuclear spin from the lower energy state to the higher energy state.

  • Steroid

    A plant or animal lipid having the characteristic tetracyclic ring structure of the steroid nucleus, namely three sixmembered rings and one fi ve-membered ring.

  • Thermoset plastic

    A polymer that can be molded when it is fi rst prepared, but once cooled, hardens irreversibly and cannot be remelted.
