Physical organic chemistry

Physical organic chemistry is the study of the interrelationships between structure and reactivity in organic molecules. It a part of organic chemistry by using tools of physical chemistry such as chemical equilibrium, chemical kinetics, thermochemistry, and quantum chemistry.

chemical shift (NMR)

Chemistry; Physical organic chemistry

The variation of the resonance frequency of a nucleus in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy in consequence of its magnetic environment. The chemical shift of a nucleus, δ, is expressed in ...

chemical species

Chemistry; Physical organic chemistry

An ensemble of chemically identical molecular entities that can explore the same set of molecular energy levels on the time scale of the experiment. The term is applied equally to a set of chemically ...

chemically induced dynamic nuclear polarization (CIDNP)

Chemistry; Physical organic chemistry

Non-Boltzmann nuclear spin state distribution produced in thermal or photochemical reactions, usually from colligation and diffusion, or disproportionation of radical pairs, and detected by NMR ...

chemoselective, chemoselectivity

Chemistry; Physical organic chemistry

Chemoselectivity is the preferential reaction of a chemical reagent with one of two or more different functional groups. A reagent has a high chemoselectivity if reaction occurs with only a limited ...

chromophore

Chemistry; Physical organic chemistry

The part (atom or group of atoms) of a molecular entity in which the electronic transition responsible for a given spectral band is approximately localized. The term arose in the dyestuff industry, ...

class (a) metal ion

Chemistry; Physical organic chemistry

A metal ion that combines preferentially with ligands containing ligating atoms that are the lightest of their Periodic Group.

class (b) metal ion

Chemistry; Physical organic chemistry

A metal ion that combines preferentially with ligands containing ligating atoms other than the lightest of their Periodic Group.
