Unformatted text preview: were any impurities in the alkyl halide layers as we were very thorough with extracting the alkyl halide layer. The percent recovery we got for each wasnt very high however we obtained enough of the alkyl halide layer to run through the gas chromatography. Conclusion Based of the percentage of each nucleophilic component, we can conclude that bromide is the stronger nucleophilic as it took longer to transfer into the gas phase so it had a stronger component within the mixture. It means that a bromide ion has a stronger attraction to the positive charge of the tert-butyl carbocation, so it would have a larger percentage of it and take a longer time to convert to the mobile gas phase....
