Chemical Properties of Alkenes

  1. Alkenes are chemically more reactive than alkanes.
  2. This because alkenes are unsaturated hydrocarbons that have a double bond, C=C, between two carbon atom.
  3. Almost all of the chemical reactions of alkene occur at the double bond.
  4. Alkenes can undergo: 
    1. Combustion reaction 
    2. Addition reaction 
    3. Polymerisation reaction
