More Carbocation Stability•For reactions that proceed through a carbocation intermediate, an alkene will react before an alkyne (they are more reactive.)•An alkyne is less stable than an alkene, but it is also less reactive because the vinylic carbocations are less stable.Section 6.5
Reaction with Halogen Acids•Alkynes can undergo the same chemical reactions that alkenes do. •Predict the major organic product(s) of the following reactions.Section 6.6+HI+HBr+HCl
