    • When performing an addition reaction to an alkene, the Hydrogen (proton) will go to the Carbon that has more Hydrogen, the other half of the addition, (Br, I, Cl, OH, etc) will go to the more substituted carbon.

  22. mercurinium ion (page 411)
    • Is formed when a  pi bond attacks a mercuric cation, the resulting intermediate cannot be considered a carbocation, because the mercury atom has electrons that can interact witht he nearby positive charge to form a bridge. This intermediate, called a mercurinium ion, is more adequately described as a hybrid of two resonance structures. 
  23. demercuration
    • The process of removing the murcury from the reaction, (is generally accomplished with sodium borohydride (NaBH4). There is much evidence that demercuration occures via a radical process. The net result is the addition of H and a nucleophile across an alkene:
    • Many nucleophiles can be used, including water:
