A measure of how closely individual measurements agree with the correct value. (Section 1.5)
The conjugate base of a terminal alkyne.
A steroid hormone, such as testosterone, that mediates the development of sexual characteristics of males.
A structure containing two rings that are fused together.
C-Terminal amino acid
The amino acid at the end of a polypeptide chain having the free !COOH group.
Center of symmetry
A point so situated that identical components of an object are located on opposite sides and equidistant from that point along any axis passing through it.
conjugate acid–base pair
An acid and a base, such as H2O and OH-, that differ only in the presence or absence of a proton. (Section 16.2)
The breakdown of a compound into two or more components. (4.4)
A compound that rotates plane-polarized light in a clockwise direction (+).
Triglycerides that are solids atroom temperature.
Gibbs free energy (G)
The ultimate arbiter of the spontaneity of a reaction, where DG = DH - T DS.
heat of reaction
The heat given off during a reaction.
polar aprotic solvent
A solvent that lacks hydrogen atoms connected directly to an electronegative atom.
A reaction that involves the participation of ions as reactants, intermediates, or products.
A triglyceride having several carbon-carbon double bonds in the hydrocarbon chains of its three fatty acids.
A radioactive nuclide. (Section 21.1)
A radioisotope that can be used to trace the path of an element in a chemical system. (Section 21.5)
redox (oxidation–reduction) reaction
A reaction in which certain atoms undergo changes in oxidation states. The substance increasing in oxidation state is oxidized; the substance decreasing in oxidation state is reduced. (Section 4.4; Chapter 20: Introduction)
A reaction in which one stereoisomer is formed in preference to all others. A stereoselective reaction may be enantioselective or diastereoselective, as the case may be.
For mechanisms, astep that involves only one chemical entity.
