Q. 335.0( 1 Vote )

Which of the following statements are correct about this reaction?
A. The given reaction follows SN2 mechanism.

B. (b) and (d) have opposite configuration.

C. (b) and (d) have same configuration.

D. The given reaction follows SN1 mechanism.

Answer :

The given reaction is an SN2 reaction, a nucleophilic substitution. Alkyl halides undergoing SN2 reaction undergo inversion of configuration, as the incoming nucleophile causes the groups surrounding the carbon atom move in a direction opposite to that of the nucleophile. Hence, (b) and (d) will have opposite configuration. This reaction is also SN2 because it has only one step where addition of OH- and removal of Cl- is simultaneous. The correct options are (i) and (ii).
