ORGANIC CHEMISTRY LANEY COLLEGE CHEM 12A Chapter 6 Learning Objectives and Terminology Distinguish the different type of organic compounds that contain halogens with the following descriptors: alkyl, vinyl, aryl, allylic, benzylic, primary, secondary or tertiary. Know the common methods of preparing alkyl halides – starting from alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, or alcohols or other alkyl halides. Allylic or benzylic bromination (using NBS) is an extremely selective method of halogenating allylic or benzylic carbons. Alkyl halides (R-X) undergo nucleophilic substitution reactions (S N 1, S N 2) and/or eliminations reactions (E1, E2). The type of reaction depends on the alkyl halide, reagents (nucleophile or base used) and the conditions (solvent, temperature, etc.). Elimination reactions are useful in the preparation of alkenes. Describe the rate of a chemical reaction using a rate law . The expression shows the dependence of the reaction on the concentrations of reactants as a proportion with a rate constant,
