Electrofuge

Electrofuge

An electrofuge is a leaving group which does not retain the bonding pair of electrons from its previous bond with another species. After this reaction an electrofuge may possess either a positive or a neutral charge; this is governed by the nature of the specific reaction.

An example would be the loss of H+ from a molecule of benzene during nitration.

The word 'electrofuge' is commonly found in older literature, but its use is now uncommon.
