electrophiles turns into nucleophile

Postby haleh matinrad 1C » Sat Feb 25, 2017 5:49 pm

Will there ever be a situation where one molecule or atom that was an electrophile could act as a nucleophile or vice versa?

Yes? Water (H2O) can act as both an electrophile and a nucleophile. It depends on what it is binding with.
