dielectric constant Dielectric constant: a measure of a solvents ability to insulate opposite charges from one another the greater the value of the dielectric constant of a solvent, the smaller the interaction between ions of opposite charge dissolved in that solvent polar solvent: dielectric constant > 15 nonpolar solvent: dielectric constant < 15 8-6 8 Protic Solvents Solvent Water Dielectric Constant (25C) Structure H2 O 79 Formic acid HCOOH

a fundamental difference between them is the timing of bond breaking and bond forming steps At one extreme, the two processes take place simultaneously; designated SN2 S = substitution N = nucleophilic 2 = bimolecular (two species are involved in the rate-Elimination determining step) 8-9 8 Mechanism -Elimination SN2 both reactants are involved in the transition state of the rate-Eliminationdetermining step H H - HO: + C

8 Evidence of SN reactions 1. What is the rate of an SN reaction affected by: the structure of Nu? the structure of RX? the structure of the leaving group? the solvent? 2. What is the stereochemistry of the product if the Nu attacks at a stereocenter? 3. When and how does rearrangement occur? 8-16 8 Kinetics For an SN1 reaction, the rate of reaction is first order in haloalkane and zero order in nucleophile CH3 CH3 CBr

haloalkane and first order in nucleophile CH3 Br + Na+OHBromomethane rate = d[ CH3 Br] dt CH3 OH + Na+BrMethanol - = k[ CH3 Br] [OH ] 8-18 8 Nucleophilicity Nucleophilicity: a kinetic property measured by the rate at which a Nu causes a nucleophilic substitution under a standardized set of experimental conditions Basicity: a equilibrium property measured by the position of equilibrium in an acid-Eliminationbase reaction

Because all nucleophiles are also bases, we study correlations between nucleophilicity and basicity 8-19 8 Nucleophilicity EffectivenessNucleophile Br- , ICH S , RS Good 3 HO-, CH3 O-, ROCN- , N3 CH3 COO- , RCOOModerate CH3 SH, RSH, R2 S NH3 , RNH2 , R2 NH, R3N Poor H2 O CH3 OH, ROH CH3 COOH, RCOOH 8-20 8 Nucleophilicity

Relative nucleophilicities of halide ions in polar aprotic solvents are quite different from those in polar protic solvents Solvent Increasing Nucleophilicity Polar aprotic I- < Br- < Cl- < F- Polar protic F- < Cl- < Br- < I- How do we account for these differences? 8-21 8 Nucleophilicity A guiding principle is the freer the nucleophile,

the greater its nucleophilicity Polar aprotic solvents (e.g., DMSO, acetone, acetonitrile, DMF) are very effective in solvating cations, but not nearly so effective in solvating anions. because anions are only poorly solvated, they participate readily in SN reactions, and nucleophilicity parallels basicity: F-Elimination > Cl-Elimination > Br-Elimination > I-Elimination 8-22 8 Nucleophilicity Polar protic solvents (e.g., water, methanol) anions are highly solvated by hydrogen bonding with the solvent the more concentrated the negative charge of the anion, the more tightly it is held in a solvent shell the nucleophile must be at least partially removed from its solvent shell to participate in SN reactions because F-Elimination is most tightly solvated and I-Elimination the least, nucleophilicity is I-Elimination > Br-Elimination > Cl-Elimination > F-Elimination 8-23 8 Nucleophilicity
