Unformatted text preview: increase the reaction rate? 5. Did you correctly predict which 2-halo-5-nitropyridine would react the fastest? Discuss which substrate had the faster reaction rate and provide a plausible explanation, including which step in the mechanism is the rate limiting step. Which is more important in determining the rate of the reaction, the halogen’s size or electronegativity? 6. What was the yield for your isolated product? Draw the structure of your final product and state (and analyze) the evidence you have that you correctly isolated this product. As part of this discussion, you should print off and annotate your IR, as well as the spectra found on Gauchospace....
