In SN2 mechanisms, primary alkyl halides reacted faster than tertiary ones while in SN1 mechanism the tertiary alkyl halides reacted faster than primary ones. It was concluded that aprotic, polar solvents favoured SN2 reactions while SN1 reactions were favoured by protic, polar solvents.
Nucleophilic substitution reactions occur by two major pathways namely SN1 and the SN2 reactions (McMurry 228). In all nucleophilic substitution reactions, the nucleophile (Nu:-) reacts with the substrate (R-X) and substitutes it for a leaving group (X:-) yielding the product R-Nu. For a neutral nucleophile (Nu:), the product is positively charged for charge conservation while for a negatively charged nucleophile (Nu:-), the product is neutral (McMurry 228).
In SN2, which stands for substitution nucleophilic bimolecular, the alkyl halide and the nucleophile are involved at the transition state (Carey 306). Bond formation between carbon and the nucleophile aids in cleavage of the bond between carbon and the leaving group. In the changeover position, the carbon atom is partially bonded to the leaving group and the incoming nucleophile (Carey 307). Since the nucleophile attacks the substrate from the side that is opposite the bond to the leaving group, the mechanism leads to the inversion of configuration in the resultant product.
Different rates are observed when methyl, primary, secondary and tertiary alkyl halides undergo nucleophilic substitution in SN2 (Carey 310). The rate is faster in methyl halides than in tertiary halides due to steric hindrance offered to the nucleophilic attack by the tertiary halides. In most SN2 reactions, the leaving group is expelled with a negative charge. Therefore, the best leaving groups are those that produce the most stables anions (McMurry 233). Among the halides, I- ion is the most reactive while F- ion is the least reactive. Most aprotic polar solvents cause the solvation of the metal counterion that is

Center of discussion in this paper is cyclohexanone semicarbazide, a component having a molecular formula written as C7H13N3O, as well as a molecular weight of about 155.1976. Its two dimension structure are represented in following research. Cyclohexanone semicarbazone adopts a distorted conformation chair with a high total puckering of the rings that are numbered.
(iv) A plot of rate of reaction (J) vs. concentration of AsO33- i.e.[A] was made (figure 2, below). A linear trendline was drawn using MS excel. Slope of this plot gives the rate constant. The value of the rate constant is 5.3x10-3s.
d) From data given in table (2) a plot of lnkR' vs.
Many enzymes work well in a narrow range of pH. A change in pH may alter the three dimensional structure of the enzyme due to formation or breakage of covalent bonds within the enzyme. A change in the structure
Chain growth polymerization can be symbolized using this chemical equation. (-M-)N (polymer) +M (monomer) -> (-M-) n+1 (Peacock and Allison 86). In this case, n refers to the degree or extent of polymerization and M occurs as an unsaturated
However, I came to realize that this company was not involved in selling of electronic goods but they offered distribution of electronic contents primarily across Europe. It’s one of the leading distributors of the services.
Generalized motor programs have unique timing structure which forms fundamental patterns that will help the experimenter identify invariant features (Schmidt & Wrisberg, 2008).On the other hand, the relative timing of a movement pattern represents the signature feature that helps the experimenter be able to clearly differentiate the phases

Therefore, the next step would be to analyze some of the chemical properties of styrene. Polystyrene is brittle, less viscous and leaves a dry film. These properties allow us to conclude that polystyrene is formed.
