Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • anion.

    An ion with a net negative charge. (2.5)

  • b-Pleated sheet

    A type of polypeptide secondary structure in which sections of polypeptide chains are aligned parallel or antiparallel to one another.

  • boranes

    Covalent hydrides of boron. (Section 22.11)

  • chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)

    Compound containing only carbon, chlorine, and fluorine.

  • conjugate acid

    A substance formed by addition of a proton to a Brønsted–Lowry base. (Section 16.2)

  • degenerate orbitals

    Orbitals that have the same energy.

  • dispersion forces

    Intermolecular forces resulting from attractions between induced dipoles. Also called London dispersion forces. (Section 11.2)

  • Electron affinity

    Energy added or released when an electron is added to an atom or molecule.

  • electron-domain geometry

    The three- dimensional arrangement of the electron domains around an atom according to the VSEPR model. (Section 9.2)

  • Hydrogen bonding

    The attractive interaction between a hydrogen atom bonded to an atom of high electronegativity (most commonly O or N) and a lone pair of electrons on another atom of high electronegativity (again, most commonly O or N).

  • hydrophilic

    Water attracting. The term is often used to describe a type of colloid. (Section 13.6)

  • hydroxyl group

    An OH group.

  • Micelle

    A spherical arrangement of organic molecules in water solution clustered so that their hydrophobic parts are buried inside the sphere and their hydrophilic parts are on the surface of the sphere and in contact with water

  • protecting group

    A group that is used during synthesis to protect a functional group from the reaction conditions.

  • Raoult’s law

    A law stating that the partial pressure of a solvent over a solution, Psolution, is given by the vapor pressure of the pure solvent, P° solvent, times the mole fraction of a solvent in the solution, Xsolvent: Psolution = XsolventP° solvent. (Section 13.5)

  • Reduction

    The gain of electrons. Alternatively, either the gain of hydrogen, loss of oxygen, or both

  • Soap

    A sodium or potassium salt of a fatty acid

  • stretching

    In IR spectroscopy, atype of vibration that generally produces a signal in the diagnostic region of an IR spectrum.

  • symmetrical ether

    An ether (R!O!R) where both R groups are identical.

  • waxes

    High-molecular-weight esters that are constructed from carboxylic acids and alcohols.
