Study Notes

Nucleophilic Substitution Reactions

  • SN2 (Substitution Nucleophilic Second Order or Bimolecular): a type of nucleophilic substitution reaction that occurs in a single step, with a transition state involving both the nucleophile and the leaving group.
  • SN1 (Substitution Nucleophilic First Order or Unimolecular): a type of nucleophilic substitution reaction that occurs in two steps, with the formation of a carbocation intermediate.

Elimination Reactions

  • E2 (Elimination Second Order or Bimolecular): a type of elimination reaction that occurs in a single step, with a transition state involving both the base and the leaving group.
  • E1 (Elimination First Order or Unimolecular): a type of elimination reaction that occurs in two steps, with the formation of a carbocation intermediate.

Test your knowledge of substitution and elimination reactions with this quiz! Identify whether the reaction is SN1, SN2, E1, or E2 based on the given descriptions. Sharpen your understanding of nucleophilic substitutions and eliminations in this fun and educational quiz.
