Page 21 - The relative tendency of a bonded atom in a molecule to attract electrons is denoted by its electronegativity.
Page 87 - If the double bond occurs on an interior carbon, the chain is numbered so that the position of the double bond is designated by the lowest possible number assigned to the first doubly bonded carbon.
Page 14 - This problem requires a consideration of bonding and antibonding orbitals. An atomic orbital may be thought of as a particular volume element at a given distance and direction from the nucleus where there is a probability of finding an electron. According to the Pauli exclusion principle, no more than two electrons can occupy an orbital. Two overlaPPing orbitals can be considered to combine to give one low-energy bonding orbital and one high-energy antibonding orbital. Consider the electron configuration...

Page 213 - D) When two weakly-activating (deactivating) groups or two strongly-activating (deactivating) groups compete, substantial amounts of both isomers are obtained; there is little preference.
