can anyone tell me..or send any links..that could tell me what would happen if
Bromine solution is reacted with cycloHEXENE both in the dark and light??
i can't seem to find anything abt it
Cyclohexene is an unsaturated hydrocarbon. Br2 adds across the double bond to form the dibromo compound. The reaction proceeds very well in the dark; in fact, light and excess bromine is avoided, if one wants the vicinal dibromide, due to the possibility of substitution reactions.
