Nucleophilic Substitution (SN1 Vs SN2)
Nucleophilic substitution is the reaction of an electron pair donor (the nucleophile, Nu) with
an electron pair acceptor (the electrophile). An sp3-hybridized electrophile must have a
leaving group (X) in order for t
A CONVERSATION ABOUT ELECTROPHILIC ADDITION REACTIONS
When alkenes undergo electrophilic addition, why does the positive charge of the carbocation always appear at
the carbon that has not bonded to the electrophile?
Yes nice question. The electrophyllic a
