Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • addition polymerization

    Polymerization that occurs through coupling of monomers with one another, with no other products formed in the reaction. (Section 12.8)

  • alpha decay

    A type of radioactive decay in which an atomic nucleus emits an alpha particle and thereby transforms (or “decays”) into an atom with a mass number 4 less and atomic number 2 less. (Section 21.1)

  • base-dissociation constant (Kb)

    An equilibrium constant that expresses the extent to which a base reacts with solvent water, accepting a proton and forming OH-1aq2. (Section 16.7)

  • Basicity

    An equilibrium property measured by the position of equilibrium in an acid-base reaction, as, for example, the acid-base reaction between ammonia and water.

  • chiral.

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

  • Cope rearrangement

    A [3,3] sigmatropic rearrangement in which all six atoms of the cyclic transition state are carbon atoms.

  • elemental semiconductor

    A semiconducting material composed of just one element. (Section 12.7)

  • frequency

    The number of times per second that one complete wavelength passes a given point. (Section 6.1)

  • Frost circle

    A graphic method for determining the relative energies of p MOs for planar, fully conjugated, monocyclic compounds.

  • Haloalkene (vinylic halide)

    A compound containing a halogen atom bonded to one of the carbons of a carbon-carbon double bond.

  • heterolytic bond cleavage

    Bond breaking that results in the formation of ions.

  • 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)

  • optically active

    A compound that rotates plane-polarized light.

  • optically inactive

    A compound that does not rotate plane-polarized light.

  • Oxidation

    The loss of electrons. Alternatively, either the loss of hydrogens, the gain of oxygens, or both.

  • peptide

    A chain comprised of a small number of amino acid residues.

  • pH

    The negative log in base 10 of the aquated hydrogen ion concentration: pH = -log3H+4. (Section 16.4)

  • physiological pH

    The pH of blood (approximately 7.3).

  • Resonance

    A theory that many molecules and ions are best described as a hybrid of several Lewis structures

  • Twist-boat conformation

    A nonplanar conformation of a cyclohexane ring that is twisted from and slightly more stable than a boat conformation.
