a monovalent organic radical (written -COOH, -CO2H or -CO.OH) whose presence confers acidic properties on the compound containing it; -- called also carboxylic group. Monocarboxylic acids (such as acetic acid or butyric acid) have one carboxyl group, dicarboxylic acids (such as oxalic acid or malonic acid) have two, tricarboxylic acids (such as citric acid) have three. It is weakly acidic, the pKa of acetic acid being 4.75.
The acidic -COOH functional group found in organic molecules.
Carbon atom linked both to an oxygen atom by a double bond and to a hydroxyl group. Molecules containing a carboxyl group are weak (carboxylic) acids.
(âˆ’COOH) a functional group consisting of a carbonyl group attached to a hydroxyl group; it is found in carboxylic acids.
COOH, characteristic of all organic acids.
the univalent radical -COOH; present in and characteristic of organic acids
a carbon atom with a double bonded oxygen atom, and a hydroxyl (OH) group attached to it
the carbon -oxygen part of an amino acid which allows chain formation (the addition of more amino acids); also occurs in other molecules.
An organic compound containing the -COOH group (see below), Where a carbonyl group is attached to a hydroxyl group. See also carboxylic acids.
the COOH group in an organic acid.
kar-BOX-ill GROOP A carbon atom double-bonded to an oxygen and single-bonded to a hydroxyl group (OH). 47
The functional group characteristic of the carbonxyl acids, i.e., CHIRALITY The left-handed or right-handed property possed by compounds that makes possible the existence of enantiomers.
The -COOH functional group, acidic in nature, found in all amino acids
The group (-COOH) found in acids (see Acid).
Also called COOH group; functional group consisting of a carbon double bonded to an oxygen and single bonded to another oxygen with a hydrogen on the other side. Terminal group on carboxylic acids.
The â€“COOH functional group found in organic molecules. Carboxyl groups are acidic in nature.
