Lecture 25: Reaction Mechanisms

  • Rate of the reaction depends on the concentration of RBrRBr  only and not on OHOH^- and so that reaction is SnSn

elimination reactions

  • Concerted reaction, one step, in which CMC-M bond breaking and CBrC-Br bond breaking occurs
  • Why E2E_2 ?
  • It goes via a bimolecular mechanism
  • Both RBrRBr  and OHOH^- are involved
  • E4E_4
  • Only RBrRBr is involved in the rate determining step
