So I was asked to write the overall equation for Br2 in Dichloromethane with Cyclohexene. I can kinda fudge the overall reaction because I know the general reaction of halogens with a double bond, but I am wondering why is the Br2 in the Dichloromethane in the first place. And I'm supposed to write down each additive step before the overall reaction...so does Br2 react with Dichloromethane BEFORE it does so with Cychlohexene???

  1. I believe the dichloromethane is a solvent for the Br2.
