CHEM 3053 Fall 2011 L. D. Shirtcliff Chapter 6 Summary Nucleophiles - Solvent effects on halides - Strengths of nucleophiles Anionic vs. neutral basicity for same nucleophilic atom - Bases vs. nucleophiles - polarizability Leaving groups - I, Br, Cl, OTs, OTf etc. - Correlation to basicity - What makes a good leaving - What makes a poor leaving group - Comparison of leaving group ability Solvents: - What are dielectric constants - Polar protic - H 2 O, EtOH, MeOH etc. - Polar aprotic - DMF, DMSO, Acetone, Acetonitrile etc. - Solvation - Role that solvents play in SN1, SN2, E1, E2 - How they interact with nucleophiles Carbocations - Stability (1° < 2° < 3°) Mechanisms - SN1 - SN2 - E1 - E2 - Mechanism for neutral vs. anionic nucleophile
