Enthalpy Change
heat absorbed or released when a rxn. occurs at constant pressure
Endothermic Rxn.
one for which delta H is positive, heat must be supplied to reactants for them to react
Exothermic Rxn.
one for which delta H is negative, heat is liberated when products formed
a measure of the “disorder” of a substance
Gibbs Free Energy
for any process at constant temp. is related to change in enthalpy, determines if there’s net driving force for reactants or products to be formed
Le Chatelier’s Principle
if a system at equilibrium’s disturbed, the direction it proceeds back to equilibrium is such that disturbance is partly offset
Rxn. Quotient Q
expression having same form as equilibrium constant for rxn.
Solubility Product Ksp

occurs when salt’s dissolved in soln. already containing one of the ions of salt, application of Le Chatelier’s Principle
occurs when substance whose solubility not exceeded precipitates along w/one whose solubility is exceeded

emission of light during transition b/w states of diff. spin multiplicity, and is slower than fluorescence
any emission of light by a molecule
emission of light by an excited-state product of chemical rxn.
2 liquids that do not form a single phase when mixed together
2 liquids that form a single phase when mixed in any ratio
Solvent Extraction
method in which chemical species transferred from one liquid phase to another, used to separate components of a mixture
process which solute’s transferred from one phase to another
technique in which molecules in mobile phase separated bc of their diff. affinities for a stationary phase
Mobile Phase
in chromatography, phase that travels through column

Ion-Exchange Chromatography
technique in which solute ions retained by oppositely charged sites in stationary phase
Molecular Exclusion Chromatography
technique in which stationary phase has porous structure into which sm. molecules can enter but lg. molecules cannot, so lg. molecules move faster
