Nucleophilic Substitution Two mechanisms general: Rate = k 1 [RX] + k 2 [RX][Y ] RX = CH 3 X k 1 increases k 2 increases k 1 ~ 0 Rate = k 2 [RX][Y ] (bimolecular) S N 2 k 2 ~ 0 Rate = k 1 [RX] (unimolecular) S N 1

S N 2 Mechanism Kinetics e.g. , CH 3 I + OH CH 3 OH + I find: Rate = k [CH 3 I][OH ], i.e. , bimolecular both CH 3 I and OH involved in RLS and recall, reactivity: R-I > R-Br > R-Cl >> R-F C-X bond breaking involved in RLS concerted, single-step mechanism: CH 3 I + OH CH 3 OH + I [HO---CH 3 ---I]
