Nucleophile Example in the OTextbook

Postby kshalbi » Sun Feb 21, 2016 6:38 pm

The organic textbook says that an example of a nucleophile is Ar- (eg. -C6H5). I dont understand this notation.Is it saying that an argon with a negative charge is a nucleophile? If it is, why does it give the hhydrocarbon group as an example of it?

Nucleophiles meet these standards:
1) Negative Charge
2) Double Bonds (such as the hydrocarbon mentioned)
3) Extra lone pairs
