Consider the Reaction
If the concentration is tripled, the reaction rate triples. If the concentration of CH3CH2OH is doubles, the rate stays the same. Write a rate expression for this reaction and show the mechanism to explain this information. Include a discussion of reaction intermediate stability.
Predict the E2 product indicating proper stereochemistry for the following reaction. Explain you prediction by indicating the mechanism by which this reaction occurs:
Design syntheses for the following products. Use the starting materials that are indicated and any other reagents that you might need.
This is a first order unimolecular reaction. A substitution nucleophilic reaction-SN1.
r = K[R-X]
r is the rate;
K is the rate constant
[R-X] is the concentration of ...
The rate of reaction and rate determining step is found for a mechanism. A prediction whether the E2 product indicates proper stereochemistry is given.
