  1. The carboxyl group is an outstanding example of the interaction of two functional groups (hydroxyl and carbonyl) when they are bonded together.
  2. The carboxyl group is an acid because it gives up a proton. (Web site)
  3. The carboxyl group is a functional group represented by --COOH.
  4. A carboxyl group is a carbonyl group attached to a hydroxyl group. (Web site)
  5. The carboxyl group is a combination of the hydroxyl and carbonyl groups.

Carboxyl Groups

  1. The deactivating nature of the carboxyl group on electrophilic substitution of benzoic acid is one example of this property. (Web site)
  2. The carboxyl group of acrylic acid can react with ammonia to form acrylamide, or with an alcohol to form an acrylate ester. (Web site)
  3. Compounds wherein the carboxyl group of the acid radical is not directly attached to the carbocyclic group. (Web site)


  1. Carboxyl group or carboxy group - C O O H or CO 2 H is a functional group present in amino acids and carboxylic acids. (Web site)
  2. The hydrogen atom makes the compound acidic, much as the hydrogen of a carboxylic acid (see carboxyl group) makes it acidic (see acids and bases). (Web site)
  3. Amino acids are linked together in proteins by a peptide bond, made by the reaction of the carboxyl group of one amino acid with the amino group of the next. (Web site)
  4. Inductive electron withdrawal will increase the electrophilic character and the acidity of the carboxyl group, as shown in the green shaded box on the right. (Web site)

Hydroxyl Group

  1. The addition of a carboxyl group to a compound is known as carboxylation; the removal of one is decarboxylation. (Web site)
  2. It is often mentioned that a carboxyl group is a carbonyl group bonded to a hydroxyl group.
  3. The carboxyl group is less acidic than is that of ASP with a pK of 4.25. (Web site)
  4. One manifestation of this interaction is the enhanced acidity of the carboxyl group relative to an isolated hydroxyl group (more than ten powers of ten).
  5. Even without the free carboxyl group asparagine is a polar molecule that is almost always found at the protein surface. (Web site)

Carbon Atom

  1. A carboxyl group (-COOH) consists of a carbon atom with a double bond to an oxygen atom and a single bond to the oxygen of a hydroxyl group.
  2. A carboxyl group consists of a carbon atom attached to an oxygen atom with a double covalent bond and to a hydroxyl group by a single covalent bond. (Web site)


  1. Since carbamic acid contains a nitrogen attached to a carboxyl group it is also an amide. (Web site)
  2. Compounds wherein the acid radical contains nitrogen directly bonded to the carbon of the esterified carboxyl group. (Web site)
  3. Compounds which contain an alicyclic nucleus not provided for above and contain more than one carboxyl group, at least one of which is esterified. (Web site)
  4. However, those compounds wherein a carboxyl group has been converted into an amide group are found in subclass 125. (Web site)
