  • Reactions of Alkenes
    • Hydrogenation
      • Occurs in the presence of a Nickel Catalyst
      • The C=C double bond breaks and the hydrogen forms bonds to the Carbon atoms
      • Forms an alkane
    • Addition of Halogens
      • Forms a halogenoalkane
      • The C=C bond breaks and the halogen is added to the alkane
    • Addition of Hydrogen Halides
      • Forms A Halogenoalkane
      • The Halogen and the Hydrogen will both be added to the alkane after the double bond is broken
    • Reaction with Acidified Potassium Manganate
      • Forms a Diol, this is a compound with 2 OH groups attached to it
