A very slightly soluble compound.
- Harmful Chemicals Found In Food
It's getting close to New Years and many people are starting to think about how to lose those extra pounds they managed to gain over the holidays. There are many sorts of diets and fads that have developed over the years from cutting carbs to cutting protein. Everyone has their own opinion as to...
- Features of the Scanning Tunneling Microscope
The scanning tunneling microscope (STM) invented by Heinrich Rohrer and Gerd Binnig in the 1980s still manages to do a great job today and competes with more advanced microscope types. The scanning tunneling microscope is used for studying the surface atoms that are found on various materials. The...
- What are Compound Microscopes?
Most of the microscopes used today are compound. A compound microscope features two or more lenses. A hollow cylinder called the tube connects the two lenses. The top lens, the one people look through, is called the eyepiece. The bottom lens is known as the objective lens. Below the two lenses is...
- Protein Design: Automated protein discovery and synthesis
In this paper I describe (theoretically) the method(s) of automated protein discovery and synthesis.
- Chemical Safety
People use chemicals every day for a wide array of purposes, which can include work and house hold duties. Many of us fail to realize that we are actually handling potentially deadly chemicals when we simply clean the bathroom or wash the car. This brings to mind the reason why chemical safety is...
The sequence of steps by which reactants are converted into products.
An atom in a molecule or polyatomic ion that is bonded to more than one other atom.
A relatively large energy separation between an insulator's highest filled electron energy band and the next higher energy vacant band. Beginning in the fourth energy level, a set of seven degenerate orbitals per energy level, higher in energy than s, p, and d orbitals of the same energy level.
A measure of the relative tendency of an atom to attract electrons to itself when chemically combined with another atom.
The substance that oxidizes another substance and is reduced.
A heavy, colorless, chemically inactive, monatomic gaseous element used for filling radio, television, and luminescent tubes. Symbol: Xe, at. wt.: 131.30, at. no.: 54.
Magnetic Quantum Number (mc)
Quantum mechanical solution to a wave equation that designates the particular orbital within a given set (s, p, d, f ) in which a electron resides.
A substance that does not conduct electricity at low temperatures but does so at higher temperatures.
A neutral subatomic particle having a mass of 1.0087 amu.
Electrolytic cell for the commercial electrolysis of molten sodium chloride. For further information see Electrochemistry or Fuel Cells.
Lewis Dot Formula (Electron Dot Formula)
Representation of the core of a molecule, ion or formula unit by showing atomic symbols and only outer shell electrons.
A ternary compound containing H, O, and another element, often a nonmetal.
A Nuclear particle with the mass of an electron but opposite charge.
At constant temperature the volume occupied by a definite mass of a gas is inversely proportional to the applied pressure.
Nuclear Binding Energy
Energy equivalent of the mass deficiency, energy released in the formation of an atom from the subatomic particles.
Unsaturated hydrocarbons that contain one or more carbon-carbon triple bonds.
Weighted average of the masses of the constituent isotopes of an element, The relative masses of atoms of different elements.
Reactions in which two compounds react to form two new compounds, with no changes in oxidation number. Reactions in which the ions of two compounds exchange partners.
Activity of a component of ideal mixture
A dimensionless quantity whose magnitude is: equal to molar concentration in an ideal solution, equal to partial pressure in an ideal gas mixture, and defined as 1 for pure solids or liquids.
Metal with low ionization energy that loses electrons readily to form cations.
