Single Bonds

Gaseous Type

linebond.png $\equiv$ { { e , Acidic-seed.png } , { e , Basic-seed.png } }

Aqueous Type

wedgebond.png $\equiv$ { { e , Cationic-seed.png } , { e , Anionic-seed.png } }

Stereochemical Type

hashbond.png $\equiv$ { { e , Dextro-seed.png } , { e , Levo-seed.png } }

Note that these assignments differ slightly from the conventional notationXlink.png used to describe molecular structures. Later, we relax the requirement for an explicit display of bond-types. And after that, we freely choose among the different symbols wedgebond.png linebond.png hashbond.png to make molecular structure diagrams as clear and simple as possible. So for example, to represent water we need two logically distinct bonds that could be shown as

H2Oexplicit.png

But after properly defining extended three-dimensional space, we can assume that the two bonds are distinct because they are in different places. (This semantically liberates the bond-symbols defined above in much the same way as the hypothesis of spatial isotropy frees the use of color terms.) Then we drop the wedge-shaped symbol to represent water with the simpler diagram

This simplification is important for complicated chemical structures.


Mixed Types wavybond.png

In addition to the three tasteless bond-types noted above, there are also a twelve bonds which do not have complete internal cancellation of sour, salty or sweet sensations.

{ { e , Acidic-seed.png } , { e , Anionic-seed.png } }
{ { e , Basic-seed.png } , { e , Cationic-seed.png } }
{ { e , Basic-seed.png } , { e , Anionic-seed.png } }
{ { e , Acidic-seed.png } , { e , Dextro-seed.png } }
