The pressure exerted by one gas in a mixture of gases.

Ground State

The lowest energy state or most stable state of an atom, molecule or ion.

PseudobinaryIonic Compounds

Geometrical Isomers

Compounds with different arrangements of groups on either side of a bond with restricted rotation, such as a double bond or a single bond in a ring, for example cis-trans isomers of certain alkenes. Stereoisomers that are not mirror images of each other, also known as position isomers.

Oxidation
