teacher didnt tell us and its come up in some past paers so thankss
I found a more simple definition (I couldn't understand the first one!) :
Nucleophile = 'a compound or functional group that is attractive to centres of positive charge, and donates electrons, especially donating an electron pair to an electrophile to form a bond'
Electrophile = 'a compound or functional group that is attractive to, and accepts electrons, especially accepting an electron pair from a nucleophile to form a bond'
thanks hun :) i understood all the last bit that s a reall good definition though!
