Further learning units

Have you completed the learning unit SN1 - First-order Nucleophilic Substitution and are looking for further material? We recommend the following learning units:

SN2 - Second-order Nucleophilic SubstitutionLevel 260 min.

ChemistryOrganic ChemistrySubstitution Reactions

This learning unit deals with second-order nucleophilic substitutions (SN2). The mechanism, applications, and parameters that influence the SN2 reaction are discussed.

SN/E Competition - SN1/E1 CompetitionLevel 330 min.

ChemistryOrganic ChemistrySubstitution Reactions

First, this learning unit describes the mechanistic reasons for the competition of elimination and nucleophilic substitution. Then, the different parameters that influence the SN1/E1 competition are discussed. After working through the learning unit, one should be able to predict, depending on given parameters, the predominant mechanism of a reaction or to choose the parameters of a reaction, so that a mechanism desired actually mainly occurs, respectively.

SN/E Competition - SN2/E2 CompetitionLevel 340 min.
