Why do only unsaturated hydrocarbons undergo addition reactions

Asked by lovemaan5500 18th March 2018, 11:06 AM
Answered by Expert
Addition reaction occurs to the moloecules which have double bond or triple bond.
These molecules can break one of the carbon -carbon bond and share these electrons to form a new bond,
that is addition reaction.
saturated compounds have only single bond so, addition reaction will not take place.
