Predict the compound in each pair that will undergo the Sn2 reaction faster.
The SN2 reaction is a type of reaction mechanism that is common in organic chemistry. In this mechanism, one bond is broken and one bond is formed synchronously, i.e., in one step. SN2 is a kind of nucleophilic substitution reaction.
is faster because in SN2 reactions the primary carbocation is more stable when compared to tertiary and secondary .forms primary carbocation and forms secondary carbocation .
forms faster because chlorine is highly electronegative atom when compared to iodine atom and to remove chlorine is difficult when compared to iodine atom .
