Answer :

Addition reactions with hydrogen takes place in unsaturated hydrocarbons which are Alkenes and Alkynes.

The General formulae for Alkenes and Alkynes are following:


Alkenes: CnH2n


Alkynes: CnH2n-2


The essential conditions required for an addition reaction to occur is:


1. Hydrocarbon should be unsaturated.


2. The addition of hydrogen to an unsaturated carbon.


The chemical equation giving the name of the reactant and the product of such a reaction is as follows:


When Ethene undergoes addition reaction with hydrogen in presence of Ni as a catalyst, the product formed is a saturated hydrocarbon which is Ethane. The chemical reaction is as follows:



This reaction is called Hydrogenation.
