Two step electrophilic addition reaction

Postby Kelly McBratney 1C » Mon Feb 29, 2016 5:45 pm

(an example is on the bottom of page 87)
When an electrophilic addition reaction is two steps with the positively charged atom binding first and the negatively one binding second, how do we know where the two different atoms bind (on which side of the double bond)? Does it matter?

The H will tend to bond onto the more "Hydrogen-rich" carbon.
I think they say they will explain why in 14C or D.

Is electrophilic addition always 2 steps?

Yes I believe so.
