Halogenation & Halohydration of Alkenes


These are two important reactions in organic chemistry synthesis. Both the reactions form a halonium ion as an intermediate. To this halonium ion nucleophiles like -Br or -OH can be added.

In halogenation, a halogen molecule like Br2 and CCl4 as the solvent are added as reagents. In halohydration, Br2 and H2O as the solvent is added.
