HydrohalogenationMarkovnikov, use one equivalent per pi bond that you want broken
Alkene addition of OH groupMarkovnikov, no carbocation rearrangement
Alkene Ozonolysis
Replace a OH with a BrPrimary and Secondary
Alkene Halohydrin Formationanti-addition
Converts OH into a Good Leaving Group
Alkene Dihydroxylationanti-addition
Reduction of a Ketone/AldehydeDoes not reduce carboxylic acid or esters. Leaves other pi bonds alone.
