this is a really good website for your question http://chemwiki.ucdavis.edu/Organic_Chemistry/Alkyl_Halides/Properties_of_Alkyl_Halides/Haloalkanes/Alkyl_Halide_Reactions
@kirstin012596 I think I can help with this
we need to get to make this |dw:1444329877232:dw|
yes, then I have to draw the structure of both the nucleophile and the alkyl bromide.
my equation bar froze
oh gosh, that's not good. my notifications are running a but slow,
These are two ways I thought about it. the second one i'm more sure of because that's what you'll learn in organic II |dw:1444330403173:dw|
You would need a primary alkyl halide for SN2 or secondary but ideally primary see above
I think in your figure you reversed it
I did, neither answer is right.
you drew an acyl bromide in the first figure
so I still have no answer...
@nincompoop @aaronq @sweetburger
Photon's answer is right. Can you post a picture of what you drew @kirstin012596 ?
I did. i drew his picture and i flipped it and it was still wrong.
you posted a picture of what you drew the second time (with photon's answer)? i dont see it here
since Sn2 is a 2nd order reaction, meaning, SN2 reaction is directly linked to the concentration of two species. You can control it with concentration.
