Homework Help: Chem

Posted by Jason on Saturday, November 22, 2008 at 10:10pm.

How would you expect the following series of compounds to compare in behavior in teh two tests(SN1 vs. SN2)?

CH3CH=CHCH2Br (1-bromo-2-butene)

CH3-C=CHCH3
l
Br

CH3CH2CH2Br (1-bromopropane)

I know primary alkyl halides like 1-bromopropane favor SN2 reactions and tertiary alkyl halides favor SN1 reactions. But I don't get what this question is asking.
