Substitution I Me NaCN I CN Me H CN Backside attack by nucleophile ( CN) C is more electron rich than N No intermediate Pentacoordinate Transition state Bimolecular (collision) - 2nd order 100% inversion of configuration S N 2 S N 1 1° and 2° halides Cl NaI H 2 O S N 2 attack must be slow due to steric hindrance Water is required for facile ionization to a carbocation Slow ionization - fast coupling - first order reaction Carbocation intermediate I I Usually requires a polar aprotic solvent
