A functional group characterized by two alkoxy (OR) groups connected to the same carbon atom.Acetals can be used as protecting groups for aldehydes or ketones.
basic oxide (basic anhydride)
An oxide that either reacts with water to form a base or reacts with an acid to form a salt and water. (Section 22.5)
An equilibrium property measured by the position of equilibrium in an acid-base reaction, as, for example, the acid-base reaction between ammonia and water.
A polymer that contains a large number of branches connected to the main chain of the polymer.
In NMR spectroscopy, protons (or carbon atoms) that occupy identical electronic environments and produce only one signal.
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)
A solid that possesses rigid and long-range order; its atoms, molecules, or ions occupy specific positions. (11.4)
An elimination reaction involving the loss of H and a halogen (such as Cl, Br, or I).
In NMR spectroscopy,protons or carbon atoms whose surrounding electron density is poor.
Any process with a positive DH (the system receives energy from the surroundings).
A process in which a system absorbs heat from its surroundings. (Section 5.2)
A measure of the exchange of energy between the system and its surroundings during any process.
A reaction in which one compound undergoes an increase in oxidation state.
A group derived by removing an H from benzene; abbreviated C6H5! or Ph!.
The breaking of a molecule into two or more neutral fragments as a result of absorption of light. (Section 18.2)
The ability of an atom or molecule to distribute its electron density unevenly in response to external influences.
A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom. (Section 2.3)
The positively charged intermediate of an electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction.
Compounds with the following structure: R!C#C!H
An element, such as nitrogen, that forms three bonds.
