Encyclopedia > Transferability

Transferability, in chemistry, is the assumption that a chemical property that is associated with an atom or a functional group in a molecule will have a similar (but not identical) value in a variety of different circumstances.[1] Examples of transferable properties include: It has been suggested that the central science be merged into this article or section. ... The phrase chemical property is context-dependent, but generally refers to a materials behavior at ambient conditions (i. ... Properties In chemistry and physics, an atom (Greek ἄτομος or átomos meaning indivisible) is the smallest particle still characterizing a chemical element. ... In organic chemistry, functional groups are specific groups of atoms within molecules, that are responsible for the characteristic chemical reactions of those molecules. ... In science, a molecule is a group of atoms in a definite arrangement held together by chemical bonds. ...

Transferable properties are distinguished from conserved properties, which are assumed to always have the same value whatever the chemical situation, e.g. relative atomic mass. Electronegativity is a measure of the ability of an atom or molecule to attract electrons in the context of a chemical bond. ... In chemistry, a nucleophile (literally nucleus lover) is a reagent which is attracted to centres of positive charge. ... It has been suggested that NMR Data Processing be merged into this article or section. ... Infrared spectroscopy (IR Spectroscopy) is the subset of spectroscopy that deals with the IR region of the EM spectrum. ... In reference to a certain isotope of a chemical element, atomic mass (though also called relative atomic mass and atomic weight) is the mass of one atom of the isotope expressed in units (atomic mass unit, amu) such that the carbon-12 isotope has an atomic mass of exactly 12. ...

Population transfer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2741 words)
Population transfer is a term referring to a policy by which a state, or international authority, forces the movement of a large group of people out of a region, most frequently on the basis of their ethnicity or religion.
Two famous transfers connected with the history of France are the expulsion of the Muslims in the 13th century, and of the Huguenots who were declared illegal by the Edict of Fontainebleau, 1685.
Thus the "population transfer" was not the actual goal of the deportations (this was the elimination of the Armenians), but it was the means of achieving this goal.
energy transfer - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about energy transfer (930 words)
The transference of chemical energy to electrical energy can be achieved using a battery or a fuel cell.
When two different metals, such as magnesium and copper, are dipped into a conducting solution (the electrolyte), the more reactive magnesium acts as a cathode (negative electrode) and the less reactive copper acts as an anode (positive electrode).
The electrolyte transfers a flow of current from the electrons lost from the more reactive magnesium to the copper; the current can be used to light a small bulb.
