Are you struggling with the notoriously difficult topic of substitution and elimination reactions in your organic chemistry class? Look no further! These notes provide a step-by-step approach to mastering the four most common mechanisms in organic chemistry: SN1, SN2, E1, and E2.
Included in these notes are detailed explanations of unimolecular and bimolecular substitution and elimination reactions, as well as factors influencing the rate and stereochemistry of these reactions. You’ll also learn about intramolecular substitution reactions (cyclizations) and a predictive model that will help you decide which mechanism you’re looking at.
These notes provide a total of 33 pages of detailed explanations and examples to help you fully grasp the material. You’ll learn proper techniques of drawing molecules in 3D and avoid common mistakes. These notes also provide a predictive model that will help you quickly and accurately determine which mechanism is at play.
Don’t let substitution and elimination reactions stress you out any longer. With these notes, you’ll have everything you need to master this challenging topic and ace your exams.
