SN2 Organic Reaction

Postby Ju-Wei Wang 1I » Sat Mar 10, 2018 3:03 pm

What exactly is a nucleophile? Is it just a molecule that carries a negative charge and is attracted to the partially positive region of another molecule?

Yes. The nucleophile will donate an electron pair to form a chemical bond.

A nucleophile is a species that will donate an electron pair to form a chemical bond. These nucleophiles can take part in substitution reactions, in which the nucleophile is attracted to a full or partial positive charge, and it serves as a replacement for a leaving group.

Why is it important to study the SN2 reaction in the chemical kinetics section?
