Solutions for Chapter 4: INTERCONVERTING STRUCTURAL REPRESENTATIONS
Full solutions for Organic Chemistry | 8th Edition
axis of symmetry
An axis about which a compound possesses rotational symmetry.
Organic material that bacteria are able to oxidize. (Section 18.4)
bonding molecular orbital
A molecular orbital in which the electron density is concentrated in the internuclear region. The energy of a bonding molecular orbital is lower than the energy of the separate atomic orbitals from which it forms. (Section 9.7)
The number of times the cycle of chain propagation steps repeats in a chain reaction.
An object that is not superimposable on its mirror image.
Compounds containing only covalent bonds. (9.4)
A process in which a system absorbs heat from its surroundings. (Section 5.2)
An anion derived by loss of a hydrogen from a carbon alpha to a carbonyl group; the anion of an enol.
A push or a pull. (Section 5.1)
Water attracting. The term is often used to describe a type of colloid. (Section 13.6)
A series of atoms, ions, or molecules having the same number of electrons. (Section 7.3)
Protons that are exchanged at a rapid rate.
lanthanide (rare earth) element
Element in which the 4f subshell is only partially occupied. (Sections 6.8 and 6.9)
In the addition of HX, H2O, or ROH to an alkene, hydrogen adds to the carbon of the double bond having the greater number of hydrogens.
A form of isomerism in which the two forms of a compound (stereoisomers) are nonsuperimposable mirror images. (Section 23.4)
Refers to groups occupying l,2-positions on a benzene ring.
A compound that prevents a radical chain process from either getting started or continuing.
reducing agent, or reductant
The substance that is oxidized and thereby causes the reduction of some other substance in an oxidation–reduction reaction. (Section 20.1)
Tertiary (3°) amine
An amine in which nitrogen is bonded to three carbons
An ester of glycerol with three fatty acids
