Nucleophilic Substitution of Alkyl Halides
Objective The objective of this experiment is to understand the Sn1 and Sn2 reaction mechanisms
under various conditions.
The first step of this experiment was to label eighteen vials and place .2mL of the alkyl halides
provided in two vials each. Sodium iodide was placed in the first set of nine vials and silver
nitrate was placed in the next set of nine vials.
