A type of rearrangement in which an atom or group of atoms with its bonding electrons moves from one atom to an adjacent electron-defi cient atom.
A type of secondary structure in which a section of polypeptide chain coils into a spiral, most commonly a right-handed spiral.
A pattern of variation in the amount of light absorbed by a sample as a function of wavelength. (Section 23.5)
An RCO! or ArCO! group.
A synthetic method that employs diethyl acetamidomalonate as the starting material and enables the preparation of racemic a-amino acids.
Compounds containing a nitrogen atom that is connected to one, two, or three alkyl or aryl groups.
A reaction in which a molecule, such as HCl, HBr, HI, or HOH, is split out or eliminated from adjacent carbons
An intermediate containing a positively charged carbon atom.
Representations of a molecule or ion that differ only in the distribution of valence electrons.
A system to specify the confi guration of groups about a carbon-carbon double bond
A voltaic cell that utilizes the oxidation of a conventional fuel, such as H2 or CH4, in the cell reaction. (Section 20.7)
A polar group that has favorable interactions with water.
Naturally occurring compoundsthat can be extracted from cells usingnonpolar organic solvents.
Thedetermining factor by which ions are separatedfrom each other in mass spectrometry.
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.
A systematic set of principles that enable the design of a synthetic route by working backward from the desired product.
sp3 Hybrid orbital
A hybrid atomic orbital formed by the combination of one s atomic orbital and three 2p atomic orbitals.
A process that is capable of proceeding in a given direction, as written or described, without needing to be driven by an outside source of energy. A process may be spontaneous even though it is very slow. (Section 19.1)
The difference in energy between staggered and eclipsed conformations (for example, in ethane).
A rule stating that the major product of a b-elimination reaction is the most stable alkene; that is, it is the alkene with the greatest number of substituents on the carboncarbon double bond
