In the last two blog posts, you have learned about the mechanism of Electrophilic Addition of Alkenes as well as how Markovnikov’s Rule works when it comes to Unsymmetrical Alkenes. If you have missed them, you should take a look at them first. It’s available via the link below:
Today, i am going to share with you on an examination based question which are commonly seen in Advanced Chemistry Syllabus such as GCE A-Level H2 Chemistry. Alot of my students in my H2 Chemistry Tuition Classes always complain to me that they do not understand what is happening when their JC Chemistry Tutor explains the concepts during tutorial classes.
Let’s take a look at the question first.
When ethene, C2H4 reacts with HBr in the presence of aqueous sodium nitrate, NaNO3, what are the possible products formed?
Now, before you click on the button and watched the video solution on this question, why not think about the solution on your own first?
