Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • acid-dissociation constant (Ka)

    An equilibrium constant that expresses the extent to which an acid transfers a proton to solvent water. (Section 16.6)

  • Brønsted–Lowry base

    A substance (molecule or ion) that acts as a proton acceptor. (Section 16.2)

  • cation

    A positively charged ion. (Section 2.7)

  • condensation reaction.

    A reaction in which two smaller molecules combine to form a larger molecule. Water is invariably one of the products of such a reaction. (24.4)

  • continuous spectrum

    A spectrum that contains radiation distributed over all wavelengths. (Section 6.3)

  • coordination compound.

    A neutral species containing one or more complex ions. (23.3)

  • Enthalpy change, DH

    The difference in total bond strengths and solvation between various points under comparison on a reaction coordinate diagram

  • excited state

    A higher energy state than the ground state. (Section 6.3)

  • exothermic

    Any process with a negative DH (the system gives energy to the surroundings).

  • Glycol

    A compound with hydroxyl (!OH) groups on adjacent carbons.

  • hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)

    Compounds that contain only carbon, fluorine, and hydrogen (no chlorine).

  • Hyperconjugation

    Interaction of electrons in a s-bonding orbital with the vacant 2p orbital of an adjacent positively charged carbon.

  • metallurgy

    The science of extracting metals from their natural sources by a combination of chemical and physical processes. It is also concerned with the properties and structures of metals and alloys. (Section 23.1)

  • metric system

    A system of measurement used in science and in most countries. The meter and the gram are examples of metric units. (Section 1.4)

  • nitrosonium ion

    The NO+ ion, which is formed when NaNO2 is treated with HCl.

  • organic chemistry

    The study of carbon-containing compounds, typically containing carbon–carbon bonds. (Section 2.9; Chapter 24:Introduction)

  • photon

    When electromagnetic radiation is viewed as a particle, an individual packet of energy.

  • Plane-polarized light

    Light oscillating in only parallel planes.

  • Retrosynthesis

    A process of reasoning backwards from a target molecule to a suitable set of starting materials.

  • solvent extraction

    A process by which one or more compounds are removed from a mixture of organic compounds, based on a difference in solubility and/or acid-base properties.
