A functional group characterized by two alkoxy (OR) groups connected to the same carbon atom.Acetals can be used as protecting groups for aldehydes or ketones.
A format for naming amines containing simple alkyl groups.
alpha (a) position
The position immediately adjacent to a functional group.
For mechanisms, a step that involves two chemical entities.
bonding atomic radius
The radius of an atom as defined by the distances separating it from other atoms to which it is chemically bonded. (Section 7.3)
The process by which a metal is oxidized by substances in its environment. (Section 20.8)
A method of problem solving in which units are carried through all calculations. Dimensional analysis ensures that the final answer of a calculation has the desired units. (Section 1.6)
A material that, when stretched or otherwise distorted, returns to its original shape when the distorting force is released.
From the Greek meaning electron loving. Any species that can accept a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond; alternatively, a Lewis acid.
An atom or group of atoms that imparts characteristic chemical properties to an organic compound. (Section 24.1)

The product of the mass, m, and velocity, v, of an object. (Section 6.4)
N-Terminal amino acid
The amino acid at the end of a polypeptide chain having the free !NH2 group
A detailed picture, or model, of how the reaction occurs; that is, the order in which bonds are broken and formed and the changes in relative positions of the atoms as the reaction proceeds. (Section 14.6)
A voltaic cell that can be recharged. (Section 20.7)
A region of space around a nucleus that can be occupied by electrons, corresponding to a principal quantum number
Sigma (s) molecular orbital
A molecular orbital in which electron density is concentrated between two nuclei, along the axis joining them, and is cylindrically symmetrical
sigma 1S2 bond
A covalent bond in which electron density is concentrated along the internuclear axis. (Section 9.6)
