Nucleophiles are electron rich species that seek out a positive charge to balance themselves out
These can come under many different forms
Neutral Molecules With LPE¶
|Water||Alcohols||Ammonia and Amines|
Species With \(\pi\) Bonds¶
The \(\pi\) bond is comparatively weak (compared to its \(\sigma\) bond counterpart) and a secondary \(\pi\) bond will be even weaker. As a result, it behaves as a nucleophile.
