Give the SN1 mechanism for the formation of 2-ethoxy-3-methylbutane, the unrearrangedproduct in this reaction.
Solution 25P :
Here, we have to give the SN1 mechanism for the formation of 2-ethoxy-3-methylbutane
SN1 mechanism is a substitution reaction involving a nucleophile where 1 specie is involved in the slowest rate determining step. ‘SN’ stands for nucleophilic substitution and ‘1’ determines that the rate determining step is unimolecular. Rate determining step is a step in a multistep reaction, that controls the overall reaction rate.
