Just want to make sure that my thought process is right on this one.
and crotyl chloride
Each is reacted with NaI (SN2?) and AgNO3 (SN1?)
And we have to rank the reaction time and wether we think a reaction would occur or not.
So SN1 is allyl > tert > sec> primary>>methyl
by carbocation stability. So I think crotyl chloride is considered an allyl by the double bond in structure so fastest to slowest would be: crotyl> tert-butyl chloride> sec-butyl chloride> n-butyl bromide> n-butyl chloride (slowest because Br is better leaving group?)
As far as reaction goes, I don't think primary can go SN1, so the last two would be no reaction
As for SN2 NaI it's ranked by hinderance so
crotyl?>n-butyl chloride>n-butyl bromide> sec. > tert.
And I know tert. can't go SN2 so no reaction for that one.
