Identify the nucleophile, its nucleophilic atom, the α carbon of the electrophile and the leaving group. 3 7. Rank the following pairs of compounds in order of increasing S N 2 reactivity and explain your choices. 8. Predict the major product of elimination for the following compounds and give a mechanism for each transformation. 4 9. Show how each of the following transformations could be achieved. Give reagents and solvents. You may have to use more than one reaction to do some of these. 10. Give a mechanism and the product for each of the following transformations: 5 11.
