enthalpy change of formation enthalpy change when one mole of a compound is formed from its elements in their standard states
entropy measure of disorder or the number of ways of arranging molecules / atoms
octane number tendancy of a fuel to autoignite. The higher the number, the less likely
full structural formula shows every atom and every bond in an organic molecule
