The stronger the bond, the higher the bond dissociation energy

A substitution reaction is one in which an atom or a group of atoms.

Breaking a bond by equally dividing the electrons between the two atoms in a bond is called homolysis.

A reagent, the chemical substance with which and organic compound reacts, is sometimes drawn on the left side of the equation with the other reactant or above the reaction arrow itself.
