Dec 07, 2008 · 1-chorobutane is reacting via the SN2 mechanism, you're right, because the carbocation intermediate needed in the SN1 mechanism isn't enough stable. So if you want to make a reaction via SN1 mechanism, use 2-chlorobutane (secunder alkyles reacts in both ways much more significant.)
Feb 06, 2010 · We tested these 10 alkyl halides under sn1 and sn2 conditions. NaI in Acetone... and AgNO3 in Ethanol. The SN2 reacted with everything accept 1-chlorobutane... the SN1 did not react with anything accept 2-bromobutane, crotyl chloride, and benzyl chloride. How come SN2 reacted with so many more and how come 1-chlorobutane did not react with either. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks (2 ...

Mar 26, 2014 · 1-chlorobutane did not form a precipitate, even in the presence of heat. For the effect of the substrate on an SN2 reaction, five test tubes were obtained. 0.1 mL of 1-chlorobutane was placed in the first test tube. 0.1 mL of 1-bromobutane was placed in the second test tube. 0.1 mL of 2-chlorobutane was placed in the third test tube.
