HI, I have a question. For the addition of H-X to alkenes. Would you have to specify the stereochemistry to the unsymmetrical carbon? would the X and the H be one of them in and the other out?

Hey there!

So for hydrohalogenation, the stereochemistry is actually unknown or can't be determined. You can view the detailed explanation here: https://www.clutchprep.com/organic-chemistry/hydrohalogenation/?c_id=703

I hope this helps!
