Covalent Bonds
A bond formes by sharing electrons between atoms
A group of atoms held together by covalent bonds
Molecular Compound
A compound that consists of molecules rather tha ions
Coordinate Covalent Bond
The covalent bond that forms when both electron are donated by the same atom
Molecular Formula
A formula tha shows the number and kinds of atoms in one molecule of a compound
Structural Formula
A molecular representation that shows the connections among atoms by using lines to represent covalent bonds
Lewis Structure
A molecular representation that shows both the connections among the atoms and the locations of the lone-pair valence electrons
Condensed Structure
A molecular representation in which bonds are understood by the order in which they are written rather that specifically shown
Polar Covalent Bond
A bond i nwhich the electrons are attracted more strongly by one atom than by the other
The ability of an atom to attract electron in a covalent bond
Binary Compound
A compound formed by combination of two different elements
Organic Chemistry
The study of carbon compounds
Functional Group

has only single bonds and contain no functional group
contains a carbon-carbon double bond functional group
contains a carbon-carbon triple-bond functional group
contains a six-membered ring of carbon atoms with three alternating double bonds
compound with the same molecular formula but different stuctures
Constitutional Isomer
compounds with the same molecular formula but different connections among their atoms
The specific three dimensional arrangement of atoms in a molecule

A molecule whose carbon atoms bond to the maximum number of hydrogen atoms
A molecule that contains a carbon-carbon multiple bond, to which more hydrogen atom can be added
Cis-trans Isomer
Alkenes that have the same connections between atoms but differ in their three dimensional structure because of the way that groups attach to diffrent sides of the double bond

A compound that has a carbonyl group bonded to two carbons of organic groups that can be the same or diffrent, R2C=O or RR'C=O
Carboxylic Acid
A compound that has a carbonyl group bonded to a carbon atom and an -OH group, RCOOH
A compound that has a carbonyl group boned to the carbon of an organic and an -OR group where R is another organic group, RCOOR or RCOOR
The reaction between an alcohol and a carboxylic acid yield and ester plus water
A compound that has on or more organic groups bonded to a nitrogen
The NH2 functional group
Heterocyclic Compound
A compound with a ring structure that contains within the ring some atom other than carbon, typically nitrogen
