The presence of pi bonds in both alkenes and alkynes allows them to undergo Addition Reactions

Halogenation

Concept #1: Determine the major product from the following Halogenation reaction. 

Under a Halogenation reaction 1 mole of Br2 or Cl2 is added to 1 pi bond to create a dihalide

Example #1: Determine the major product from the following Halogenation reaction. 

Hydrogenation

Concept #2: Understanding Hydrogenation

Under Hydrogenation an alkene or alkyne reacts with hydrogen gas (H2) over a metal catalyst in order to remove pi bonds. 

Example #2: Determine the major product from the following Hydrogenation reaction. 

Example #3: How many moles of hydrogen would be needed to completely reduce the following compound? 

Hydrohalogenation

Concept #3: Understanding Hydrohalogenation

Under a Hydrohalogenation reaction an alkene or alkyne reacts with HCl or HBr to add a hydrogen and halogen to the pi bond. 

Example #4: Determine the major product from the following Hydrohalogenation reaction. 

Example #5: Determine the major product from the following Hydrohalogenation reaction.
