Why the alkenes give electrophillic addition reactions ?

No comments

Alkenes give electrophillic addition reactions because of the following reasons:-

1. The pie electrons of the double bond attract electrophiles .

2. The electron density is more on the C-C double bond , so the electrophiles preferably attack on it as compared to the electrophiles which are repelled.
