Polymers that are formed via cationic addition, anionic addition, or free-radical addition.
The Group 1A elements (Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs, and Fr). (2.4)
A reaction that achieves the installation of an alkyl group. For example, an SN2 reaction in which an alkyl group is connected to an attacking nucleophile.
A substance that has the characteristic properties of a metal and contains more than one element. Often there is one principal metallic component, with other elements present in smaller amounts. Alloys may be homogeneous or heterogeneous. (Section 12.3)
beta (b) rays.
The ability of the atoms of an element to form bonds with one another. (22.3)
A means of protecting a metal against corrosion by making it the cathode in a voltaic cell. This can be achieved by attaching a more easily oxidized metal, which serves as an anode, to the metal to be protected. (Section 20.8)
A polymer in which neighboring chains are linked together, for example, by disulfide bonds.
deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA).
A type of nucleic acid. (25.4)
Atoms or groups on an atom that are bonded to an atom that is bonded to two nonidentical groups, one of which contains a chiral center. When one of the atoms or groups is replaced by another group, a new chiral center is created and a set of diastereomers results. The hydrogens of the CH2 group of 2-butanol, for example, are diastereotopic. Diastereotopic groups have different chemical shifts under all conditions
A nonsuperimposable mirror image.
The ability to do work.
An orbital that results from the mixing of different kinds of atomic orbitals on the same atom. For example, an sp3 hybrid results from the mixing, or hybridizing, of one s orbital and three p orbitals. (Section 9.5)
A homogeneous alloy with definite properties and a fixed composition. Intermetallic compounds are stoichiometric compounds that form between metallic elements. (Section 12.3)
overall reaction order
The sum of the reaction orders of all the reactants appearing in the rate expression when the rate can be expressed as rate = k3A4a 3B4b... . (Section 14.3)
In mass spectrometry,the ion that is generated when the compound is ionized.
A carbohydrate that reacts with an oxidizing agent to form an aldonic acid. In this reaction, the carbohydrate reduces the oxidizing agent.
A term used to indicate that a certain volume of a compound will dissolve in a specified amount of a liquid at room temperature.
A conformation in which nearby groups in a Newman projection have a dihedral angle of 60°.
A reagent used to perform a Wittig reaction.
