Parent topics


  • Atomic orbital [r]: Function in quantum mechanics describing the motion of an electron around the nucleus of an atom. [e]
  • Electronegativity [r]: Electronegativity is a measure of the tendency to attract electrons. Generally, it is used in the context of describing one species of atom's (element's) attraction of electrons in a chemical bond relative to another species. A higher electronegativity number indicating a greater tendency for attraction. [e]
  • Gaussian type orbitals [r]: Functions used as atomic orbitals in the LCAO method for the computation of electron orbitals in molecules. [e]
  • Hydrogen bond [r]: A non-covalent and non-ionic chemical bond involving a hydrogen atom and either Fluorine, Nitrogen, or Oxygen. [e]
  • Intermolecular forces [r]: Non-covalent forces between atoms and molecules; often synonymous with Van der Waals forces. [e]
  • Molecular orbital [r]: A function in quantum mechanics describing the motion of an electron in a molecule. [e]
  • Molecular orbital theory [r]: Deals with definition and computation of molecular orbitals. [e]
  • Macromolecular chemistry [r]: The study of the physical, biological and chemical structure, properties, composition, and reaction mechanisms of macromolecules. [e]
  • Octet rule [r]: Concept of chemical bonding theory based on the assumption that in the formation of compounds, atoms exhibit a tendency for their valence shells either to be empty or to have a full complement of eight electrons. [e]
  • Orbital hybridisation [r]: The concept of mixing atomic orbitals to form new hybrid orbitals suitable for the qualitative description of atomic bonding properties. [e]
  • Organic chemistry [r]: The scientific study of the structure, properties, composition, reactions, and preparation (by synthesis or by other means) of chemical compounds of carbon and hydrogen, which may contain any number of other elements. [e]
  • Oxidation [r]: Chemical loss of electrons, gain of oxygen, or loss of hydrogen, from an atom, ion or molecule (oxidation); chemical gain of electrons, loss of oxygen, or gain of hydrogen, from and atom, ion, or molecule (reduction) [e]
  • Slater orbital [r]: Functions used as atomic orbitals in the linear combination of atomic orbitals molecular orbital method. [e]
  • Van der Waals molecule [r]: A stable molecular cluster consisting of two or more molecules held together by van der Waals forces or by hydrogen bonds. [e]

  • Atom (science) [r]: The defining unit of chemical elements. [e]
  • Atomic electron configuration [r]: A specification of the occupation of an atom's electron orbitals by electrons. [e]
  • Catalysis [r]: A process that uses a substance (known as a catalyst) to accelerate the rate of a chemical reaction through an uninterrupted and repeated cycle of elementary steps until the last step regenerates the catalyst in its original form. [e]
  • Chemical elements [r]: In one sense, refers to species or types of atoms, each species/type distinguished by the number of protons in the nuclei of the atoms belonging to the species/type, each species/type having a unique number of nuclear protons; in another sense, refers to substances, or pieces of matter, each composed of multiple atoms solely of a single species/type. [e]
  • Chemical reaction [r]: A process that transforms one set of chemical substances into another, with the set of substances present at the start of the process being called reactants and the set of substances present at the end being called products. [e]
  • Electron shell [r]: A group of electron orbitals that share the same principal quantum number (n). [e]
  • Electronic band structure [r]: The very closely spaced energy levels available to electrons in solids, which are separated from each other by energy gaps. [e]
  • Organic reaction [r]: A chemical reaction involving organic compounds. [e]
  • Oxidative stress [r]: An imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen and a biological system's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or easily repair the resulting damage. [e]
  • Periodic table of elements [r]: A tabular method of displaying the chemical elements. [e]
  • Reaction rate [r]: The amount of reactant or product that is formed or removed (in moles or mass units) per unit time per unit volume, in a particular reaction. [e]
  • Schottky diode [r]: A two-terminal electrical device consisting of conductive gate (for example, a metal) on top of a semiconductor body used for switching, rectification and photo-detection [e]: See particularly Barrier height.
