Use the general form rather thanspecific molecules (for example: you would put down H* as one entry, which is HCI,HBr, H,SO4, H2O, ROH, NH3, RCO,H or any other source of H*).

Hi!

Are these nucleophiles and electrophiles that I listed int hte image correct?

Thanks,

Shreya

Step 1

A molecule or ion that accepts a pair of electrons to make a new covalent bond is called an electrophile (from the Greek for "electron loving"). 

An electrophile is the same thing as a Lewis acid. Any molecule, ion or atom that is electron deficient can behave as an electrophile. The most common indications of electron deficiency would include :

  • a formal positive charge such as methyl carbocation, CH3+
  • a partial positive charge (d+), usually in conjunction with a polar bond such as H-Cl
  • an open octet like borane. 
Step 2

A molecule or ion that donates a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond is called a nucleophile (from the Greek for "nucleus loving"). 

A nucleophile is the same thing as a Lewis base. Any molecule, ion or atom that has electrons that can be shared can be a nucleophile. The most common indications that electrons are available to be sha...
