General Rules (and exceptions) 1. If the nucleophile is a strong base, E-2 elimination is favored Exceptions: If the R-X is primary, SN-2 is favored with strong’base. Note-1: if the nucleophile is hindered, E2 is still favored for primary R-X Note-2: if the primary R-X has a branch at the B—carbon, E-2 is still favored 2. If the nucleophile is a weak base, substitution (SN-1 or SN-2) is favored Exceptions: If the R-X is secondary and a di or trisubstittued alkene can be formed, thenE-1 is favored if the R-X is tertiary and a tri- or tetrasubstituted alkene can be formed, then E1 is favored lll.
