English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. molecule

    A particle is a very small part of any material substance; as, a particle of sand or of dust; it is a general term, not accurately determinate in meaning. Atom (Greek a- privative, not, and temno, cut) etymologically signifies that which can not be cut or divided, and is the smallest conceivable particle of matter, regarded as absolutely homogeneous and as having but one set of properties; atoms are the ultimate particles of matter. A molecule is made up of atoms, and is regarded as separable into its constituent parts; as used by physicists, a molecule is the smallest conceivable part which retains all the characteristics of the substance; thus, a molecule of water is made up of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. Element in chemistry denotes, without reference to quantity, a substance regarded as simple, i. e., one incapable of being resolved by any known process into simpler substances; the element gold may be represented by an ingot or by a particle of gold-dust. In popular language, an element is any essential constituent; the ancients believed that the universe was made up of the four elements, earth, air, fire, and water; a storm is spoken of as a manifestation of the fury of the elements. We speak of corpuscles of blood. Compare PART.

How to use molecule in a sentence?

  1. Konstantinos Giapis:

    At the time we thought it would be impossible to combine the two oxygen atoms of a CO2 molecule together because CO2is a linear molecule, and you would have to bend the molecule severely for it to work, youre doing something really drastic to the molecule.

  2. Terry Gates:

    You're looking at about seven feet of tubing before the molecule of air ever actually enters the head.

  3. Eric Wish:

    While the press and the media talk about Spice and K2 like it’s a single type of phenomenon, the truth can’t be further from that, basically what you have is some chemist in another country, oftentimes the DEA says it’s China, who waits and they see what has been put on the prohibited list by the government. And then they go ahead and they tweak the molecule a little so it’s no longer on the prohibited list and then they make it available.

  4. Jason McLellan:

    What weve been able to do is produce the molecule thats on the surface of the coronavirus in our lab. So the surface of the virus contains these spike molecules that sort of resemble mushrooms and they use these molecules to bind to our cells and then cause the virus to enter the cells, so we really want to target these spikes to prevent their function and prevent the virus from getting into our cell.

  5. Robert McKenna:

    It never ceases to amaze me how a simple molecule such as saccharin— something many people put in their coffee every day— may have untapped uses, including as a possible lead compound to target aggressive cancers.
