Atif Saleem, Chem 3AL, Section 101 Discussion: Experiment 10, Nucleophilic Substitution Reactions of Alkyl Halides My partner was Jafar Mahmood in today’s experiment. In today’s lab, the purpose was to test the reactivities of several alkyl halides with two reagents: Sodium iodide in acetone, and ethanolic silver nitrate. We started out by testing sodium iodide in acetate which is an excellent nucleophile and favors SN2 reactions. 1) 1-bromopentane reacted by forming precipitate at the bottom. 2) 1-chloropentane gave no reaction, even though as a primary substrate it was predicted to. 3) 2-bromopentane became cloudy yellow upon heating. 4) 3-bromopentane reacted by forming precipitate upon heating. 5) 1-bromo-2-methylpropane reacted by forming a yellow precipitate upon heating for about 4 minutes. 6) 2-chloro-2-methylpropane gave no reaction. 7) 1-bromo-2,2-dimethylpropane turned bright yellow and remained that way. 8) bromocyclopentane reacted by forming precipitate upon heating. 9) bromocyclohexane only turned slightly yellow. 10) 1-bromoadamantane gave no reaction. 11) 1-chloroadamantane

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
