What is the nature of the first-formed intermediates in the electrophilic halogenation of alkenes, alkynes, and allenes?

Abstract

The pi complexes first formed as essential intermediates from alkenes, alkynes, and allenes with bromine have been investigated in different solvents by UV-spectroscopy in combination with stopped-flow techniques allowing the determination of the equilibrium constants, K(f). Using alkenes with sterically protected double bonds, such as di-tert-butylstilbene… (More)
