(a) no change in rate (b) the rate triples, dependent only on [ t-butyl bromide ] (c) Virtually all reaction rates, including this one, increase with a temperature increase. 6-50 The key to this problem is that iodide ion is both an excellent nucleophile AND leaving group. Substitution on chlorocyclohexane is faster with iodide than with cyanide (see Table 6-3 for relative nucleophilicities). Once iodocyclohexane is formed, substitution by cyanide is much faster on iodocyclohexane than on chlorocyclohexane because iodide is a better leaving group than chloride. So fast reactions involving iodide replace a slower single reaction, resulting in an overall rate increase. two o6-51 (a) 0- Cl + -CN moderate rate .. Cl + -I fast
