Heterolysis can generate a carbocation (a positively charged carbon intermediate) or a carbanion (a negatively charged carbon species).

Two sigma bonds are broken and a pi bond is formed between adjacent atoms in elimination reactions. 

A one-step reaction is called a concerted reaction, while a stepwise reaction involves more than one step, and the staring material is first converted to an unstable intermediate called a reactive intermediate.
