The terms "adhesive" and "cohesive" are used to describe the characteristics of materials. The ability of a substance to attach to another surface is referred to as adhesive, whereas the ability of a substance to attach to itself is referred to as cohesive. Read this article to find out more about Adhesive and Cohesive and how they are different from each other. What is Adhesive? A substance that is used to attach or join two surfaces together is known as an adhesive. Adhesives come in a number of forms, including liquids, pastes, films, and tapes. They are categorized depending on ... Read More

Differences Between Irreversible and Reversible Enzyme Inhibitors

Enzymes are proteins that catalyze specific biochemical reactions in living organisms. Enzyme inhibitors are molecules that reduce or eliminate the activity of enzymes. They can be classified into two types: irreversible enzyme inhibitors and reversible enzyme inhibitors. The main difference between the two types is their ability to bind to the enzyme and the nature of the inhibition. What are Irreversible Enzyme Inhibitors? Irreversible inhibitors bind tightly to the enzyme, thus dissociating very slowly from it. They can form either covalent or non-covalent bonds with their target. Many important drugs, such as penicillin, are irreversible enzyme inhibitors. Penicillin is ... Read More

In organic chemistry, isomers are compounds that have the same molecular formula but different structures. There are two main types of isomers: constitutional isomers and stereoisomers. In this essay, we will explore the differences between constitutional isomers and stereoisomers. What are Constitutional Isomers? Constitutional (structural) isomers are compounds with the same molecular formula but with a different structure. Constitutional isomers are of three types. Skeletal (chain) Isomers Skeletal isomers have a uniform quantitative, qualitative, and functional composition, but a structurally different chain of molecules. The chains may be straight or differently branched. Typically, skeletal isomers have different physical properties. Positional ... Read More

Bromine and chlorine are two halogens that are frequently used in industrial and household settings. Despite having many similarities, these elements differ in their physical and chemical properties. In this essay, we will explore the differences between bromine and chlorine in detail. What is Bromine? Bromine (Br) is a nonmetal chemical element of VIIA group of the Periodic system, which under normal conditions is a reddish-brown liquid with a highly irritating odor. Bromine is number 35 in the Periodic table and has an atomic mass of 79.904. It is less reactive than chlorine. However, under normal conditions, bromine participates ... Read More

Difference Between Bond Energy and Bond Dissociation Energy Enthalpy

Vineet Nanda
Updated on 17-Apr-2023 17:48:50
Chemical bonds are the attractive forces that hold atoms together in a molecule or compound. The strength of a chemical bond is determined by the amount of energy required to break the bond. This energy is often measured in terms of bond energy or bond dissociation energy enthalpy. While these two terms may seem similar, there are some key differences between them. What is Bond Energy? Bond energy refers to the amount of energy required to break a specific bond in a molecule or compound. It is the energy required to separate two atoms that are bonded together. Bond energy ...
