Would hydrogen bonding stabilize the halogen ions?
A. yes B. No C B A C B A 16 -1.74 Which halide (X⊖) is the least reactive?
Increasing reactivity Which species would be more stabilized by hydrogen bonding?
A. the reactants B. the transition state. transition state

R 3 10/12/2012 If the reactants are more stabilized than the transition state
will the reaction go (A) faster or (B) slower? Ea E R If hydrogen bonding is very important which halogen would be
predicted to react the fastest in hydrogen bonding solvents?
