Problem 17Q

What is an alkene addition reaction? Provide an example.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 17Q:

Here, we are going to discuss about alkene addition reaction with an example.

Step1:

Alkenes are unsaturated hydrocarbons containing at least one double bond.

Alkenes are the rich source of loosely held pi (π) electrons, due to which they show addition reactions in which the electrophiles(attracted to electrons) add on to the carbon-carbon double bond to form the addition products.

Step2:

A brief description of different addition reactions of alkenes is given below:

Addition of dihydrogen: Alkenes add up one molecule of dihydrogen gas in the presence of finely divided nickel, palladium or platinum to form alkanes.

                                CH2 = CH2 + H-H CH3 -...
