Nucleophilic Participation During Electrophilic Addition to Alkenes - Freshman Organic Chemistry - Michael McBride - Lecture 12 of 38 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Organic Chemistry

Description: When electrophilic addition involves a localized carbocation intermediate, skeletal rearrangement sometimes occurs, but it can be avoided when both alkene carbons are involved in an unsymmetrical 3-center-2-electron bond, as in Markovnikov hydration via alkoxymercuration followed by reduction.
