an unusually poor nucleophile, even compared with ordinary alcohols such 
as ethanol. Suggest an explanation for the poor nucleophilicity of the solvent. (b) What can 
you say about the relative rates of the two steps (rate1 and rate2), and how do they compare 
to those in the usual SN1 reaction mechanism? (c) How might increasing carbocation stability 
and decreasing solvent nucleophilicity affect the relative magnitudes of rate1 and rate2 in an 
SN1 process? (d) Write the complete mechanism for the reaction above.

 How do the reaction mechanisms and product formation differ when the structure of the sub-
strate and reaction conditions change? To begin to unravel the nuances of bimolecular and 
unimolecular substitution and elimination reactions, focus on the treatment of bromoalkanes A 
through D under conditions (a) through (e). Divide the problem evenly among yourselves so 
that each of you tackles the questions of reaction mechanism(s) and qualitative distribution of 
product(s), if any. Reconvene to discuss your conclusions and come to a consensus. When you 
are explaining a reaction mechanism to the rest of the team, use curved arrows to show the 
fl ow of electrons. Label the stereochemistry of starting materials and products as R or S, as 
appropriate.
