Title: SN1 reaction
Post by: waroruto on June 03, 2021, 01:40:10 AM
According to mechanism of SN1 nucleophilic substituition, the leaving grup first leavs the compund and than nucleophilic attack happens. So if the leaving grup is halogen, would this kind of compund react positive to test for halogenides(with AgNO3 for example) if it has enouf time? Thanx for answer.

Product of Sn2 reaction will not react with AgNO3 ? How is this related to Sn1 ?

@OP, What is your prediction for the rate of precipitate formation for tertiary vs. secondary alkyl halides?
