Draw the products obtained from the SN2 reaction of
a. 2-bromobutane and methoxide ion. c. (S)-3-chlorohexane and hydroxide ion.
b. (R)-2-bromobutane and methoxide ion. d. 3-iodopentane and hydroxide ion
Step 1 of 4</p>
Treatment of 2-bromobutane with methoxide ion gives 2-methoxybutane. This is an reaction. Here, the configuration is not specified for the reactant, so the configuration of the product cannot be specified.
Step 2 of 4</p>
Treatment of (R)-2-bromobutane with methoxide ion gives (S)-2-methoxybutane. This is an reaction. Here, the configuration is changed from the reactant to the product. Inversion of the configuration takes place in the product.
