Hello everyone


In Peter Sykes',"A Guidebook to mechanism in Organic Chemistry",it's =
stated that nucleophilic additions to carbonyl compounds are quite =
reversible.
But a few lines later he says,"The T.S resembles the adduct more than =
the starting material".What do these lines mean?Are these reactions in =
general reversible or not,and if so,under what conditions?Does this =
relate to Hammond's Postulate in any way?
Thanks
