absolute temperature scale.
A temperature scale that uses the absolute zero of temperature as the lowest temperature. (5.3)
A term used initially to classify benzene and its derivatives. More accurately, it is used to classify any compound that meets the Hückel criteria for aromaticity (Section 21.2A).
An array of closely spaced molecular orbitals occupying a discrete range of energy. (Section 12.4)
The C “O double bond, a characteristic feature of several organic functional groups, such as ketones and aldehydes. (Section 24.4)
An expression showing the chemical composition of a compound in terms of the symbols for the atoms of the elements involved. (2.6)
Properties of solutions that depend on the number of solute particles in solution and not on the nature of the solute particles. (12.6)
An elimination reaction involving the loss of H and a halogen (such as Cl, Br, or I).
A process in which a system absorbs heat from its surroundings. (Section 5.2)
The practice in which water laden with sand and other materials is pumped at high pressure into rock formations to release natural gas and other petroleum materials. (Section 18.4)
A compound containing a halogen atom and a hydroxyl group on adjacent carbons; those containing Br and OH are bromohydrins, and those containing Cl and OH are chlorohydrins.
A vacancy in the valence band of a semiconductor, created by doping. (Section 12.7)
hydronium ion 1H3O+2
The predominant form of the proton in aqueous solution. (Section 16.2)
In radical reaction mechanisms, a step in which radicals are created.
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.
polar aprotic solvent
A solvent that lacks hydrogen atoms connected directly to an electronegative atom.
A measure of the force exerted on a unit area. In chemistry, pressure is often expressed in units of atmospheres (atm) or torr: 760 torr = 1 atm; in SI units pressure is expressed in pascals (Pa). (Section 10.2)
A biopolymer formed from amino acids. (Section 24.7)
Compounds with the following structure: R!C#C!H
Valence Bond Theory
A model of bonding that places electron pairs between adjacent atoms to create bonds.
Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion theory, which can be used to predict the geometry around an atom.
