Substitution and elimination reactions
SN1, SN2, E1, E2, nucleophiles, nucleophilicity, basicity
SN1 vs SN2
In this tutorial, Sal analyzes the differences between SN1 and SN2 reactions.
Nucleophilicity and basicity
In this tutorial, Sal discusses the difference between nucleophilicity and basicity.
In this tutorial, Sal explains the difference between an E1 and an E2 elimination reaction.
In this tutorial, Sal compares the differences between E2, E1, SN2, and SN1 reactions.
SN1 and SN2
In this tutorial, Jay covers the definitions of nucleophile/electrophile, The Schwartz Rules (may the Schwartz be with you!), and the differences between SN1 and SN2 reactions.
- E1 Elimination: mechanism
- E1 Elimination: regioselectivity and stereoselectivity
- carbocations and rearrangements
- E1 Elimination: carbocation rearrangements
- E2 Elimination: mechanism
- E2 Elimination: regioselectivity
- E2 Elimination: stereoselectivity
- E2 Elimination: stereospecificity
- E2 Elimination: substituted cyclohexanes
E1 and E2 reactions
In this tutorial, Jay covers the E1 elimination mechanism, carbocation rearrangements, and the details of the E2 elimination reaction.
nucleophilicity and basicity
Correction: I forgot to draw a negative charge next to the first iodide anion.
- SN1 SN2 E1 E2 reactions: primary and tertiary alkyl halides
- SN1 SN2 E1 E2 reactions: secondary alkyl halides
In this tutorial, Jay discusses the strength of a nucleophile and the differences between SN1, SN2, E1, and E2 reactions.
