Step by Step Solution

Lewis acid-base reaction

The product created after the Lewis acid-base reaction is referred to as the Lewis acid-base adduct. A coordinate covalent bond is present in the final product of the Lewis acid-base reaction.

Electrophiles and nucleophiles

Lewis acids are also referred to as electrophiles, whereas nucleophiles are referred to as Lewis bases.

Identification of electrophile and nucleophile in compounds 

a. The compound is regarded as the electrophile, and the compound is the nucleophile. The Lewis acid-base reaction can be given as follows:

Identification of electrophile and nucleophile in reaction a

b. The compound is considered as the electrophile, and the compound is the nucleophile. The Lewis acid-base reaction can be given as follows:

Identification of electrophile and nucleophile in reaction b

c. The cyclohexane comprising a positive charge is the electrophile and is the nucleophile. The reaction of the Lewis acid with a Lewis base is

given below.
