C H 2 CH 2 Br Br + C H 2 Br CH 2 + + Br    C H 2 CH 2 Br Br Bromonium ion Bridging ion occurs with chlorine too. Bromonium or chloronium ion hogs all of the space on one side of both carbons. Forces bromide anion to approach from opposite side of double bond. What difference does this make? Often cannot tell from product that bromonium ion intermediate was formed. Sometimes you can tell, however. Example cyclohexane reacting with bromine (next page).

What about addition reactions which don't form bridged cations? When a carbocation is formed as an intermediate, which of the two double-bond carbons gets the stick and which is stuck with the charge (carbocation)? C H 3 CH 2 CH CH 2 HBr HBr C H 3 CH 2 CH CH 2 H + C H 3 CH 2 CH CH 2 H + ????? POSSIBLE PRODUCTS: C H 3 CH 2 CH CH 2 H Br C H 3 CH 2 CH CH 2 H Br This product is major product.
