© E.V. Blackburn, 2008 Mechanism of alkene hydrogenation Hydrogenation is stereospecific. The two hydrogens add to the same side of the double bond - a syn addition.

© E.V. Blackburn, 2008 C C π π The π electrons are less tightly held than the σ electrons. The double bond therefore acts as a source of electrons - a base – a nucleophile. It reacts with electron deficient compounds - acids - electrophiles. Reactions of alkenes

© E.V. Blackburn, 2008 Electrophilic addition The typical reaction of alkenes is one of electrophilic addition - an acid - base reaction. C C + YZ C C Y Z Don’t forget that free radicals are electron deficient. They undergo addition reactions with alkenes. Electron seeking reagents are called electrophilic reagents.

© E.V. Blackburn, 2008 Markovnikov addition - a regioselective reaction These reactions are said to be regioselective because only one of the two possible directions of addition occurs. Regioselectivity - the preferential formation of one isomer in those situations where a choice is possible.
