Dear Rishabh

Non terminal - These are functional groups of organic compounds that CANNOT BE found in terminal carbon (the end carbons of the chain).

An example is the carbonyl functional group which can be EITHER terminal or non-terminal. If you have a carbonyl group attached to a terminal carbon, you call it an ALDEHYDE e.g ethanal, but if you have a carbonyl attached TO ANY carbon OTHER THAN terminal carbon that compound is a KETONE e.g. acetone.

 

All the best.
