Draw the substitution products that will be formed from the following SN2 reactions:
a. cis-1-bromo-4-methylcyclohexane and hydroxide ion
b. trans-1-iodo-4-ethylcyclohexane and methoxide ion
c. cis-1-chloro-3-methylcyclobutane and ethoxide ion
Step 1 of 3</p>
The configuration of product of reactions involves an inversion of configuration. In these reactions the incoming nucleophile attack the * orbital of the bond. This means that the nucleophile should attack the leaving group directly from behind, leading to inversion of configuration. If the leaving group is axial, then the incoming nucleophile will end up at equatorial.
Step 2 of 3</p>
Methoxide ion reacts with -1-iodo-4-ethylcyclohexane by mechanism to form -1-ethyl-4-methoxycyclohexane.
