SN/E Competition - Role of the Temperature
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.
- Fundamentals of the competition of elimination and nucleophilic substitution.
- Parameters that influence the SN2/E2 competition.
- Parameters that influence the SN1/E1 competition.
- Prediction of the predominant reaction mechanism depending on the different parameters.
