Alkenes and carbonyl compounds both contain a π bond but alkenes show electrophilic addition reactions whereas carbonyl compounds show nucleophilic addition reactions. Explain.
Both the compounds carbon atom is attached to the electronegative atom oxygen. Thus the oxygen pulls more shared pair of electron towards them and a partial positive
charge will be acquired by carbon and a partial negative charge by oxygen. So carbonyl atom is attacked by a nucleophile.
