Full solutions for Organic Chemistry | 7th Edition
A molecule containing two !OR or !OAr groups bonded to the same carbon
The conjugate base of acetylene or any terminal alkyne.
A three-dimensional plot of y2 of a wavefunction. It is a region of space that can accommodate electron density.
An estimate of the size of an atom. See bonding atomic radius. (Section 7.3)
A reaction in which a molecule, such as HCl, HBr, HI, or HOH, is split out or eliminated from adjacent carbons
A unit of pressure equal to 105 Pa. (Section 10.2)
A compound containing a carboxyl, !COOH, group.
The generally larger formation constants for polydentate ligands as compared with the corresponding monodentate ligands. (Section 23.3)
Cis, trans isomers
Stereoisomers that have the same connectivity but a different arrangement of their atoms in space as a result of the presence of either a ring or a carboncarbon double bond.
A technique by which compounds are separated from each other based on a difference in the way they interact with the medium (the adsorbent) through which they are passed.
An organic compound that has an OR group attached to a carbonyl; it is the product of a reaction between a carboxylic acid and an alcohol. (Section 24.4)
Faraday constant (F )
The magnitude of charge of one mole of electrons: 96,500 C>mol. (Section 20.5)
heat of combustion
The heat given off during a reaction in which an alkane reacts with oxygen to produce CO2 and water.
homolitic bond cleavage
Bond breaking that results in the formation of unchanged species called radicals.
The conjugate base of phenol or a substituted phenol.
A material that can be formed into particular shapes by application of heat and pressure. (Section 12.8)
quaternary ammonium salt
An ionic compound containing a positively charged nitrogen atom connected to four alkyl groups.
The structure of a protein resulting from the clustering of several individual protein chains into a final specific shape. (Section 24.7)
A compound such as a phenol that selectively reacts with radicals to remove them from a chain reaction and terminate the chain
Groups that weakly activate an aromatic ring toward electrophilic aromatic substitution, thereby enhancing the rate of the reaction.
