Bromine adds to propene to give 1,2-dibromopropane in a stepwise manner.The first step of the complexation involves the alkene's pi-system reacting with a bromine cation to give an intermediate carbeneium ion (also called a carbocation or a bromonium ion) and a bromide anion.This step is a nucleophilic substitution, with the pi system nucleophile displacing the bromide ion nucleofuge (the leaving group) from Br+.
