Short Note

Explain the following reaction with example.

#### Solution

The reaction in which the addition of a substance occurs across the carbon-carbon double or triple bond is called an addition reaction. Addition reactions occur in unsaturated hydrocarbons.

e.g.

$\begin{array}{cc} \phantom{................................}\ce{H}\phantom{...}\ce{H}\\ \phantom{................................}|\phantom{....}|\\ \ce{H - C = C - H \underset{\text{Hydrogen}}{+ H - H} ->[Ni/Pt] H - C - C - H}\\ |\phantom{.....}|\phantom{..........................}|\phantom{....}|\\ \ce{\phantom{.}\underset{\text{Ethene}}{H \phantom{...}H}}\phantom{.........................} \ce{\underset{\text{Ethane}}{H \phantom{...}H}} \end{array}$
