Electron Rearrangement

Postby BeejenPatel_1B » Sun Feb 28, 2016 6:42 pm

In reaction mechanisms, does the nucleophilic(electron rich) molecule go to the electrophilic(electron poor) molecule or is it the other way around?

So basically, the attraction is mutual! However in class, it was always described as the electron deficient molecule "attacking" the electron rich molecule.
