Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • aliphatic hydrocarbons.

    Hydrocarbons that do not contain the benzene group or the benzene ring. (24.1)

  • boiling point.

    The temperature at which the vapor pressure of a liquid is equal to the external atmospheric pressure. (11.8)

  • bond length

    The distance between the centers of two bonded atoms. (Section 8.3)

  • Dielectric constant

    A measure of a solvent’s ability to insulate opposite charges from one another

  • doping

    Incorporation of a hetero atom into a solid to change its electrical properties. For example, incorporation of P into Si. (Section 12.7)

  • enthalpy

    A measure of the exchange of energy between the system and its surroundings during any process.

  • First ionization potential

    The energy needed to remove the most loosely held electron from an atom or molecule.

  • frontier orbital theory

    The analysis of a reaction using MO theory, where only the frontier orbitals (HOMO and LUMO) are considered.

  • Heterocycle

    A cyclic compound whose ring contains more than one kind of atom. Oxirane (ethylene oxide), for example, is a heterocycle whose ring contains two carbon atoms and one oxygen atom.

  • hydrate

    A compound containing two hydroxyl groups (OH) connected to the same carbon atom.

  • isoelectronic series

    A series of atoms, ions, or molecules having the same number of electrons. (Section 7.3)

  • isoprene

    2-Methyl-1,3-butadiene.

  • Ketone

    A compound containing a carbonyl group bonded to two carbons.

  • lanthanide contraction

    The gradual decrease in atomic and ionic radii with increasing atomic number among the lanthanide elements, atomic numbers 57 through 70. The decrease arises because of a gradual increase in effective nuclear charge through the lanthanide series. (Section 23.1)

  • lone pair

    A pair of unshared, or nonbonding, electrons.

  • peptide

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

  • pyrometallurgy

    A process in which heat converts a mineral in an ore from one chemical form to another and eventually to the free metal. (Section 23.2)

  • reaction mechanism

    A series of intermediates and curved arrows that show howthe reaction occurs in terms of the motion of electrons.

  • reductive amination

    The conversion of a ketone or aldehyde into an imine under conditions in which the imine is reduced as soon as it is formed, giving an amine.

  • resonance hybrid

    A term used to describe the character of a chemical entity (molecule, ion, or radical) exhibiting more than one significant resonance structure.
