-CH3 Nucleophile

Postby kshalbi » Sun Feb 21, 2016 8:50 pm

Does the "-" before the CH3 represent a negative charge on the carbon, or does it just indicate where the nucleophile attaches?

-CH3 is where it is attached. because CH3 has an extra electron, it can forms bonds and break and give electrons. See ClCH3 in the course reader on page 85.

In addition, a negatively charged CH3 nucleophile would be displayed with a lone pair and a negative charge sign.
