My lab teacher told me to leave my sample mixture of 2-bromobutane and 2-chlorobutane in a solution 1-2ml of sodium bicarbonate. Then I asked after I had wrapped it up, whether there would be a reaction if I left it there for a whole week since that's what I'm doing. He then said "hopefully not"...hopefully?!

well would there be a reaction?

Thanks.
