Reactions of Alkenes
1011303Reactions of AlkenesAlkenes readily share their π electrons with electron-deficient (electrophilic) reagents. Thus alkenes act as Lewis bases. They are also called nucleophiles because they are nucleus-loving or -seeking reagents. Alkenes do not react with the nucleus of an atom (which is positively charged), but share their electrons with electron-deficient species. It will help to look at the structures in the various figures as you read this chapter for a better understanding of the reactions and reaction mechanisms.
