Atom Economy
Is a measure of the efficiency of a Reaction --> %atom economy = (Mr of Desired/Mr of all) x100
1 of 8
(Free) Radical
Species that has an unpaired electron
2 of 8
Biofuel
Fuel derived from recently living plant material - renewable
3 of 8
Carbon Capture & Storage
The removal of waste carbon dioxide as a liquid injected deep in the oceans, as storage in deep rock formations or by reaction with metal oxides to form stable carbonate minerals.
4 of 8
Percentage Yield
The mass/moles of product expressed as a percentage of what you should obtain assuming complete conversion --> % Yield = (actual yield/theoretical yield) x100
5 of 8
Dynamic Equilibrium
When in a closed system the rate of both the forward reaction and the backward reaction are equal
6 of 8
Activation Energy
Is the minimum amount of energy required for the reactants to react together
7 of 8
Le Chatelier’s Principle
The position of equilibrium will shift as to minimize the effect of any change in conditions
