Factors that affect which mechanism predominates: 1. The structure of the alkyl halide 2.The nucleophile 3. the solvent of the reaction Take a close look at S N 2 first - then come back to S N 1.

2. Effect of Nucleophile on S N 2 Nucleophilicity is a measure of how readily (fast) a nucleophile attacks an electron-deficient atom Nucleophilicity is measured by a rate constant ( k ) UNLIKE Basicity is a measure of how well a compound (a base) shares its lone pair with a proton Basicity is measured by the acid dissociation constant ( K a ) - an equilibrium expression
