O O H H O O O O O O O O O O O O O O 1-5 diketone product OH OH Basic Mechanism of Michael Reaction The Michael Reaction is a well known name reaction in organic chemistry. Similar to the Aldol  Reaction, The Michael Reaction results in the formation of a carbon carbon bond, which is not  often seen in organic chemistry. Other names for the Michael Reaction are conjugated addition,  1, 4 addition and nuclephilic attack of B-position.  When looking to see if a Michael Reaction will occur, you must have an electrophile and a  nucleophile. The electrophile needs to be conjugated, as for the nucleophile there are preferred  nucleophiles.
