Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Carole on Monday, July 4, 2011 at 6:30pm.

Two lists of nucleophiles:
H2O CH3CH2OH
H3CO- CH3COO-
OH- OH-
H2N- CH3CH2O-
H3COH (CH3)3CO-

The first part is to give the strongest nucleophile in group 1. I picked H2N-because its the strongest base.
Part two asks for the BEST (doesn't say strongest) nucleophile for an SN2 reaction with 1-Chlorodecane.

I'm just not sure. How do you choose a nucleophile based on what its reacting with?
