Electrophilic Addition versus Substitution

Postby Tatum_Bernat_1E » Tue Mar 07, 2017 8:16 pm

Hello! I still do not understand how to label the type of mechanism or reaction when referring to electrophilic addition and others. Is it the number of steps or type of steps? How do I differentiate the different types? Thanks in advance!

Addition: you start off with two molecules for reactants, you end up with one molecule in products.
