Tetrahedral carbonyl addition compound

A tetrahedral carbonyl addition compound is an organic compound formed by nucleophilic addition to a carbonyl compound such as an aldehyde or ketone. This provides the carbon with four temporary bonds, one of which is broken when the leaving group leaves, and another which is formed by formation of a double bond.
