carbonyl group

A functional group with a carbon atom double-bonded to O2; the 2 remaining bonds are free to attach to other molecules.

Examples of carbonyl compounds
Aldehydes, amides, acyl halides, amides, carboxylic acids, esters, and ketones.

carbonyl group (kärˑ·b·nil grōōpˑ),

The presence of the carbonyl group leads to an abundant ion at m/z 181, which corresponds to the PFB group used for the PFB ester derivatization.
The susceptibility of the carbonyl group to nucleophilic attack is reduced by its attachment to electron-releasing alkyl groups that reduce the degree of positive charge on the carbon.

Taking into account the microstructures of these copolymers, the intermolecular hydrogen bond between the carbonyl group of MMA and the amide group of MAAM has a larger probability of occurring than the self-association through hydrogen bonding of pure PMAAM (15).
The modified elastomer must have a functional group that can interact with a carbonyl group such as maleic anhydride, phthalic anhydride, acrylic acid, maleic acid, itaconic acid, epoxy, or a glycidyl group.
