Two lists of nucleophiles:
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?
I didn't realize the compounds would jumble. The compounds are actually in two columns. Column 1: H20, H3CO-, OH-, H2N-, H3COH. Column 1 goes with the first part.
Column 2: CH3CH2OH, CH3COO-, OH-, CH3CH2O-, (CH3)3CO-. Column 2 goes with the second part.
