Absolute confi guration
Which of the two possible isomers an enantiomer is (i.e., whether it is the right- or left-handed isomer).
alpha (a) amino acid
A compound containing a carboxylic acid group (COOH) as well as an amino group (NH2), both of which are attached to the same carbon atom.
The electrode at which oxidation occurs. (18.2)
During polymerization, the growth of a branch connected to the main chain.
critical pressure (Pc).
The minimum pressure necessary to bring about liquefaction at the critical temperature. (11.8)
A semiconducting material composed of just one element. (Section 12.7)
A property that depends on the amount of material considered; for example, mass or volume. (Section 1.3)
An alloy in which the components are not distributed uniformly; instead, two or more distinct phases with characteristic compositions are present. (Section 12.3)
The equilibrium established between substances in two or more different phases, for example, between a gas and a solid or between a solid and a liquid. (Section 15.4)
A twostep process that achieves an anti-Markovnikov addition of a proton and a hydroxyl group (OH) across an alkene.
Compounds that contain only carbon, fluorine, and hydrogen (no chlorine).
The requirement for an odd number of p electron pairs in order for a compound to be aromatic.
The energy required to separate completely the ions in an ionic solid. (Section 8.2)
Structural isomers of coordination compounds in which a ligand differs in its mode of attachment to a metal ion. (Section 23.4)
A substance that exhibits one or more partially ordered liquid phases above the melting point of the solid form. By contrast, in nonliquid crystalline substances the liquid phase that forms upon melting is completely unordered. (Section 11.7)
The arrangement of elements in order of increasing atomic number, with elements having similar properties placed in vertical columns. (Section 2.5)
A term used to indicate that exactly one alkyl group is attached directly to a particular position. For example, a primary carbocation has one alkyl group (not more) attached directly to the electrophilic carbon atom (C+).
The difference in energy between a resonance hybrid and the most stable of its hypothetical contributing structures in which electrons are localized on particular atoms and in particular bonds.
A unimolecular nucleophilic substitution reaction.
An electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction in which an SO3H group is installed on an aromatic ring.
