because no free radicals are involved in the reaction process

only carbo cations and Cl- are evolved which are ionic !!!

If ethene reacts with chlorine the only product is CH2 Cl-CH2Cl What type of reaction took place?

This is an addition reaction, as the double carbon-carbon bond in ethene breaks to accomodate the two chlorine atoms. Product is 1,2, dichloroethane


Why addition reaction takes place in ethene and ethyne but not in ethane?

why addition reaction take place in ethene and ethyne but not in ethane


Which compounds take part in an addition reaction?

Ethene undergoes addition reaction


Why is the reaction of ethene with bromine called an addition?

The explanation is that from two chemical entities is obtained another by addition (Br to ethene).


Why addition reactions occur in ethene and ethyne but not in ethane?

addition reaction take place in ethene and ethyne because they are unsaturated hydrocarbones and in ethane all its vallency are fully satisfied


Ethene reacts with water to form ethanol This type of raction is called?

Electrophilic addition reaction Also, it's a hydration reaction, since you are adding water to the alkene (in this case, ethene).


What is the chemical reaction of ethene?

Ethene has a double bond between the two carbon atom (i.e. unsaturation) and generally will give addition reactions to form saturated compounds.


What kind of chemical reaction takes place between water and ethane to form ethanol?

Only ethene react with water to form ethanol.


Why is the reaction of ethene with bromine called an addition reaction?

Br2 + C2H4 → C2H4Br2 ORBr2 + CH2=CH2 → BrCH2CH2BrThe name of the reaction is pretty intuitive. Ethene's double bond is broken which leaves room for bromine to be added to form dibromoethane.

C2H4 plus H2O equals?

This reaction is an example of a 'hydration' or 'addition' reaction of alkenes: (ethene + water) C2H4 + H2O --> C2H5OH (ethanol) The reaction is catalysed by H+ ions (acid)


What is the process by which ethene is obtained through ethanol?

ethene is obtained truogh ethanol by...condesation reaction.
