CHEM 2341 Chapter 6 Objectives Substitution Reactions and Elimination Reactions 1. Classify alkyl halides as primary, secondary, tertiary, vinylic, allylic, or benzylic and understand their general chemical features. 2. Know the two types of nucleophilic substitution reaction mechanisms. 3. Identify nucleophiles, leaving groups, and write general equations for substitution reactions. 4. Describe the S N 2 reaction mechanism and identify terms associated with energy diagrams for one-step reactions. 5. Describe the S N 1 reaction mechanism and identify terms associated with energy diagrams for two-step reactions. 6. Know factors affecting reaction rates of S N 2 and S N 1 reactions. (Explain how steric factors affect S

(Distinguish between protic and aprotic solvents and describe their influence on substitution reactions) 7. Predict whether S N 2 or S N 1 will predominate for a given reaction. 8. Describe dehydrohalogenation reactions and the resulting alkene products. 9. Predict the product(s), including any stereochemistry, of substitution and elimination reactions. 10. Predict whether substitution or elimination will predominate, given particular reaction conditions. 11. Predict reactants, products, or reagents for a given synthetic transformation....
