Unformatted text preview: stereochemistry of the product. Because the reaction proceeded via an SN 1 mechanism, the product is a racemic mixture of R and S. 2. (S)-2-chlorobutane is allowed to react with NaI in a polar aprotic solvent, to yield a substitution product. Write the structure of the product and describe the stereochemistry of the product. Because the reaction proceeded via an SN 2 mechanism, there was complete inversion of configuration and the product will be 100% (R)-2-iodobutane. (R) Configuration Only 3. Use equations to describe the mechanism for the reaction of ethyl bromide with potassium cyanide in acetone solution. I H...
