Reaction proceeds by way of a mechanism in which the leaving group dissociates in a kinetically slow step, producing a planar carbocation which is then rapidly attacked by a nucleophile.
Steric congestion = teritary promotes SN1
L and D
R and S
Actual yield / theoretical yield
Must contain carbon and hydrogen in its formula. There must be a covalent bond between a carbon and hydrogen atom in the molecular structure.
Weak acids, with acidic hydrogen bonded to an oxygen atom
Solvent that promotes SN2
Aprotic Solvents such as acetone or DMSO
Melting Point Test
When impurities are present, it lowers the melting point and broadens the range
rotate polarized light clockwise
