Nucleophilic Substitution Reactions
Nucleophilic substitutions are among the most common and versatile reactions in organic chemistry. In this module you will investigate the key charactersitics of nucleophiles, the molecular mechanisms by which these substitutions occur and the factors that determine the effectiveness of particular species in this class of reaction.
