Positively loaded or neutral species are called electrophiles that are deficient in electrons and can accept a couple of electrons. These are also called species that love electron (philic).

  • The term electrophile can be split into “electro” derived from electron and “phile” which means loving.
  • They are electron deficient and hence electrons loving.
  • They are positively charged or neutrally charged.
  • They attract electrons. Movement of electrons depends on the density.
  • They move from high-density area to low density area.
  • They undergo electrophilic addition and electrophilic substitution reactions.
  • An electrophile is also called as Lewis acid.
