    • Abstract


      A complete analysis of the work on the addition of bromine ethylene derivatives under varying conditions of structure, solvent and temperature brings out the composite nature of the reaction. With the Roberts-Kimball postulate as the starting-point, it is found that the variations in reaction order can be readily understood from the variations in the importance of the rate determining step. A mechanism incorporating all the details is presented.
