SN/E Competition - Role of the Temperature

ChemieOrganische ChemieSubstitution

First, this learning unit describes the mechanistic reasons for the competition of elimination and nucleophilic substitution. Then, the influence of the reaction temperature on the SN2/E2 competition as well as the SN1/E1 competition is discussed.
