Organic compounds which behave as an electrophile as wellas a nucleophile: Organic compound in which carbon is bonded with
electronegative atom (O, N, S) by multiple bond/bonds behaves as electrophile
as well as nucleophile:
R – C – H, R – C – R, R – C – OH, R – C – Cl, R – C – OR,R – C – NH 2 , R – C = N, R – N = C
