Unformatted text preview: 3 4. Consider this reaction: CH 3 CH 2 CH 3 Br + – OH H 2 O [ ! ] = +22 o H CH 3 CH 2 CH 3 H OH a. What is the expected effect on the rate of the reaction if each of the following changes is made? Possible answers: increases, decreases, remains the same. Change Effect on S N 1 Effect on S N 2 Use 2-methyl-2-bromobutane- instead of 2-bromobutane. Use the alkyl iodide instead of the alkyl bromide Use H 2 O (only) instead of – OH and H 2 O Increase concentration of – OH Change solvent to DMSO b. Which of the characterization techniques that you have learned about so far would best help you to distinguish whether this substitution product was a result of the S N 1 versus S N 2 mechanism? Explain your answer....
