Carbocation:
In which reaction mechanism is it an intermediate?

  • Organic Chemistry -

    I think you are probably after an SN1 reaction and/or an E1 reaction.

    The way that your question is written a carbocation is also an intermediate in other reaction mechanisms such as rearrangements of carbocations or electrophilic substitution reactions.
