Show how you might use SN2 reactions to convert 1-chlorobutane into the followingcompounds.
Here, we are going to write the complete reaction by SN2 mechanism for the product formation using 1-chlorobutane.
Second-Order Nucleophilic Substitution (SN2 Reaction) is a single step reaction, where , A strong nucleophile attacks the electrophilic carbon, forcing the leaving group to leave.
Step 2:1-chlorobutane to butan-1-ol
(b) 1-chlorobutane to 1-fluorobutane
(c) 1-chlorobutane to iodobutane
