Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Antiaromatic compound

    A monocyclic compound that is planar or nearly so, has one 2p orbital on each atom of the ring, and has 4n p electrons in the cyclic arrangement of overlapping 2p orbitals, where n is an integer. Antiaromatic compounds are especially unstable

  • aromatic hydrocarbon.

    A hydrocarbon that contains one or more benzene rings. (24.1)

  • atomic number (Z).

    The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom. (2.3)

  • bonding atomic radius

    The radius of an atom as defined by the distances separating it from other atoms to which it is chemically bonded. (Section 7.3)

  • chemical formula

    A notation that uses chemical symbols with numerical subscripts to convey the relative proportions of atoms of the different elements in a substance. (Section 2.6)

  • conduction band

    A band of molecular orbitals lying higher in energy than the occupied valence band and distinctly separated from it. (Section 12.7)

  • coordination number.

    In a crystal lattice it is defined as the number of atoms (or ions) surrounding an atom (or ion) (11.4). In coordination compounds it is defined as the number of donor atoms surrounding the central metal atom in a complex. (23.3)

  • Correlation tables

    Tables of data on absorption patterns of functional groups.

  • electron configuration

    The arrangement of electrons in the orbitals of an atom or molecule (Section 6.8)

  • equatorial position

    For chair conformations of substituted cyclohexanes, a position that is approximately along the equator of the ring.

  • halogenation

    A reaction that involves the addition of X2 (either Br2 or Cl2) across an alkene.

  • hard water

    Water that contains appreciable concentrations of Ca2 + and Mg 2 + ; these ions react with soaps to form an insoluble material. (Section 18.4)

  • lanthanide contraction

    The gradual decrease in atomic and ionic radii with increasing atomic number among the lanthanide elements, atomic numbers 57 through 70. The decrease arises because of a gradual increase in effective nuclear charge through the lanthanide series. (Section 23.1)

  • miscible liquids

    Liquids that mix in all proportions. (Section 13.3)

  • molecular weight

    The mass of the collection of atoms represented by the chemical formula for a molecule. (Section 3.3)

  • Mutarotation

    The change in specifi c rotation that occurs when an a or b hemiacetal form of a carbohydrate in aqueous solution is converted to an equilibrium mixture of the two forms.

  • protium

    The most common isotope of hydrogen. (Section 22.2)

  • rate law

    An equation that relates the reaction rate to the concentrations of reactants (and sometimes of products also). (Section 14.3)

  • ring flip

    A conformational change in which one chair conformation is converted into the other.

  • twist boat

    A conformation of cyclohexane that is lower in energy than a boat conformation but higher in energy than a chair conformation.
