Why does alkyne and alkene undergo addition reaction whereas alkane does not?
Alkanes are already bonded strongly, while alkenes and alkynes have weak
Alkenes and alkynes are unsaturated - they have
This means that they are more unstable than alkanes, since
Addition reactions are where more atoms are added to the molecule, not swapped or taken away. This means that the
Alkanes do not undergo this reaction because they already only have single
