There are two main types of polar addition reactions:
Other non-polar addition reactions exists as well:
Addition reactions are limited to chemical compounds that have multiply-bonded atoms:
- Molecules with carbon-carbon double bonds or triple bonds
- Molecules with carbon - hetero double bonds like C=O or C=N
- Addition reactions are applied in addition polymerization.
- The basic organic chemistry reaction types are addition reactions, elimination reactions, substitution reactions, rearrangement reactions and organic redox reactions.
