# Reactivity of Alkynes


The reactions of alkynes closely parallel the reactions of alkenes. Addition reactions are typical. In these reactions, the $$\ce{C\bond{#}C}$$ triple bond is converted into a $$\ce{C\bond{=}C}$$ double bond. The alkenes formed from these reactions can undergo a tautomerization (see the hydration reactions below) or react further to produce alkane derivatives.
