Reaction Mechanism | Concept to understand reaction mechanism |

(A) Electronic displacement in the covalent bond

In covalent bonds there are the following factors;

  1. Inductive effect
  2. Resonance effect
  3. Electromeric effect
  4. Hyperconjugation effect

(B) Nature of Reagents

  1. Electrophiles – Electrons loving species
  2. Nucleophiles – Nucleus loving species

(C) Bond cleavage or Fission bond

  1. Homolysis / symmetrical / Non – polar bond cleavage
  2. Heterolysis / unsymmetrical bond cleavage

In the next post, we are going to discuss a detailed explanation of the following topics.
