Reactions of olefines (A) can be represented as proceeding by two distinct mechanisms, the one involving a free radical intermediate of the type (B), and the other proceeding by a polarisation of the electrons of the carbon-to-carbon double bond to give in the extreme case an intermediate of the type (C). Reactions of the latter type are termed ionic reactions. The ease with which either type of reaction can occur can be predicted from a knowledge of the nature of the double bond.
