Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • activated complex.

    The species temporarily formed by the reactant molecules as a result of the collision before they form the product. (13.4)

  • allotropes.

    Two or more forms of the same element that differ significantly in chemical and physical properties. (2.6)

  • antiaromatic

    Instability that arises when a planar ring of continuously overlapping p orbitals contains 4n p electrons.

  • bimolecular

    For mechanisms, a step that involves two chemical entities.

  • blocking group

    A group that can be readily installed and uninstalled. Used for regiochemical control during synthesis.

  • Carboxylic acid

    A compound containing a carboxyl, !COOH, group.

  • condensation polymer

    A polymer,that is formed via a condensation reaction.

  • Confi gurational isomers

    Isomers that differ by the confi guration of substituents on an atom. Refers to the arrangement of atoms about a stereocenter

  • crystallite

    A region of a polymer inwhich the chains are linearly extended and closein proximity to one another, resulting in van der Waals forces that hold the chains close together.

  • decarboxylation

    A reaction involving loss of CO2, characteristic of compounds containing a carbonyl group that is beta to a COOH group.

  • Diels-Alder adduct

    A cyclohexene resulting from the cycloaddition reaction of a diene and a dienophile.

  • fibers

    Strands of a polymer that are generated when the polymer is heated, forced through small holes, and then cooled.

  • hydrophilic

    A polar group that has favorable interactions with water.

  • l-Monosaccharide

    A monosaccharide that, when written as a Fischer projection, has the !OH on its penultimate carbon to the left.

  • mass spectrometer

    An instrument used to measure the precise masses and relative amounts of atomic and molecular ions. (Section 2.4)

  • Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy

    A spectroscopic technique that gives information about the number and types of atoms in a molecule, for example, hydrogens (1 H!NMR) and carbons (13C!NMR)

  • Nucleophile

    From the Greek meaning nucleus-loving. Any species that can donate a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond; alternatively, a Lewis base

  • periodic table

    The arrangement of elements in order of increasing atomic number, with elements having similar properties placed in vertical columns. (Section 2.5)

  • retro-aldol reaction

    The reverse of an aldol reaction. A b-hydroxyketone or aldehyde is converted into two ketones or aldehydes.

  • tertiary structure

    The threedimensional shape of a protein.
