electrophile vs neutrophile

Postby nick_pantoja_3G » Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:14 pm

i know that electrophile (based on the root words) likes electrons, does that mean it is positive and wants a negative value, or that its negative and wants a positive value. thank you.

Electrophiles are positively charged and are attracted to electrons. Nucleophiles are negatively charged and donate electrons.
