Addition reactions

Addition reaction and mechanism in organic chemistry


In organic chemistry an addition reaction is a basic chemical reaction in which two or more molecules react to one larger molecule (adduct). The addition is the reverse of the elimination reaction.

The additions is - like the substitution reaction and the rearrangement reaction - one of the basic operations of chemical synthesis. Specific reaction types are listed under the heading of name reactions.

Reaction center of the additions are usually multiple bonds (double bonds, triple bonds), to which attaches the reactants, with the multiple-bond character is resolved.

Below you will find online available information resources about addition reactions and mechanisms in chemistry.

Organic Reaction Mechanisms

This book, written for graduate and post-graduate chemistry students, provides an extensive coverage of various organic reactions, rearrangements and reagents, with emphasis on their applications in organic synthesis. In the chapters on oxidation and reduction a summary of oxidation and reduction of organic compounds with the different reagents is given in a tabular form for the convenience of students. The most commonly encountered reaction intermediates are discussed in detail. The applications of organic reagents are illustrated with examples while the chapters on prericyclic reactions and photochemical reactions were included in the second and third editions, respectively, in this fourth edition a new chapter on solved problems has been added, to enable students evaluate their understanding of the topic.
