Mechanism for electrophillic addition reactions of alkenes

No comments

The mechanism involves the following steps :-

Step 1 :- In first step the polarity is developed on the bromine molecule , and the partial positive side of the bromine molecule attacks on the carbon atom of the double bond. This leads to the formation of carbocation.

Step 2 :- In second step the negative part of the attacking reagent attacks on the carbon with positive charge.
