Triflate is an excellent leaving group but poor nucleophile due to resonance (or electron delocalization) and inductive effects . 2. 3. (a) Rate is slower. NaSPh is a poorer nucleophile than NaSCH 3 due to benzene ring resonance delocalization of the sulfur’s electron density . (b) Rate is slower. Bromide ion is a poorer leaving group than triflate due to the lack of resonance and inductive stabilization in Br - . (c) Rate is slower. A tert-butyl group causes more steric hindrance than a methyl group .
