Sterling from University of Nevada - Las Vegas said

"If I knew then what I knew now I would not have bought the book. It was over priced and My professor only used it a few times."

Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Amino acid

    A compound that contains both an amino group and a carboxyl group

  • Chain-transfer reaction

    The transfer of reactivity of an endgroup from one chain to another during a polymerization

  • chiral.

    Compounds or ions that are not superimposable with their mirror images. (23.4)

  • column chromatography

    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.

  • Coulomb’s law.

    The potential energy between two ions is directly proportional to the product of their charges and inversely proportional to the distance between them. (9.3)

  • diatomic molecule

    A molecule composed of only two atoms. (Section 2.6)

  • Dipole-dipole interaction

    The attraction between the positive end of one dipole and the negative end of another.

  • d–d transition

    The transition of an electron in a transition-metal compound from a lower-energy d orbital to a higher-energy d orbital. (Section 23.6)

  • elimination-addition

    A reaction that occurs between chlorobenzene and either NaOH (at high temperature) or NaNH2.

  • Energy

    The ability to do work.

  • enthalpy of formation

    The enthalpy change that accompanies the formation of a substance from the most stable forms of its component elements. (Section 5.7)

  • Fourier-transform NMR (FT-NMR)

    In nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, a technique in which the sample is irradiated with a short pulse that covers the entire range of relevant rf frequencies.

  • hydrogen bonding

    Bonding that results from intermolecular attractions between molecules containing hydrogen bonded to an electronegative element. The most important examples involve OH, NH, and HF. (Section 11.2)

  • Ionization potential (IP)

    The minimum energy required to remove an electron from an atom or molecule to a distance where there is no electrostatic interaction between the resulting ion and electron.

  • Lewis acid

    Any molecule or ion that can form a new covalent bond by accepting a pair of electrons.

  • Lewis dot structure

    The symbol of an element surrounded by a number of dots equal to the number of electrons in the valence shell of the atom

  • limiting reactant (limiting reagent)

    The reactant present in the smallest stoichiometric quantity in a mixture of reactants; the amount of product that can form is limited by the complete consumption of the limiting reactant. (Section 3.7)

  • Nucleophilicity

    A kinetic property measured by the rate at which a nucleophile causes nucleophilic substitution on a reference compound under a standardized set of experimental conditions.

  • nucleotides

    The product formed when a nucleoside is coupled to a phosphate group

  • Syndiotactic polymer

    A polymer with alternating R and S confi gurations at the chiral centers along its chain, as, for example, syndiotactic polypropylene
