document Markovnikov Rule
This is an empirical (experimentally-derived) rule based on Markovnikov's observations  (1870) on the addition of hydrogen halides to alkenes. The rule states that:   "When an unsymmetrical alkene reacts with a hydrogen halide to give an alkyl halide, the hydrogen adds to the...

document Regioselectivity in Alkene Additions
If alkene addition involves adding non-symmetrical reagents to a non-symmetrical alkene, then two isomeric products (constitutional isomers) can be obtained. For example, the reaction of HCl with propene gives 1-chloropropane and 2-chloropropane.     Normally, ...

document Stereoselectivity in Alkene Additions
When an alkene undergoes addition, two new sigma bonds form.  If we think of an alkene as having two faces (top or bottom), then the two new sigma bonds can either both form on the same face, which we call syn addition, or they can be formed on opposite faces, which we call anti...
