Unformatted text preview: make the double bond. Example of an E1 reaction: Base Strength: A strong base not required, since it is not involved in the rate-determining step Leaving groups: A good leaving group is required, such as a halide or a tosylate, since it is involved in the rate-determining step. Rearangements: Since the mechanism goes through a carbocation intermediate, rearangements can occur....
