Electrophilic addition reaction

Postby Guillermo Vega 1H » Sun Feb 26, 2017 11:46 pm

How can we tell which part of a molecule is chemically unique? Also, whenever there is a double bond will there always be an Electrophilic Addition Reaction?

The presence of non carbon, non hydrogen molecules usually makes a part of the molecule unique? Chemically unique is a bit vague. No, that is not the case, because there are reactions that go from double bond to triple bond, or a triple bond that undergoes electrophilic addition. Electrophilic addition is a general class of reactions that includes addition to a double bond but neither are defined solely by this relationship.
