What is a Grignard reagent?
Grignard reagents, type of organometallic compounds, are widely used in organic reactions as a source of carbananions such as alkyl, phenyl anions. The general formula of Grignard reagent is R-Mg-X which readily dissociates into R- and +MgX. Grignard reagents are highly sensitive to water.
what are enzymes?
enzymes are biological agents which accelerate a chemical reaction happening in living organisms. Biological enzymes are similar to catalysts in chemistry with a difference being enzymes are more specific and they increase the rate of reaction by many folds. Enzymes are generally made up of proteins.
Subject: Basic Chemistry
what are isotopes?
Isotopes are the atoms with the same number of protons (and electrons) with a different number of neutrons in the nuclei. For example, H and D both have a single proton but H has no neutron and D has 1 neutron and hence they are isotopes
