Problem: For the following SN2 reaction, draw the organic and inorganic products of the reaction, and identify the nucleophile, substrate, and leaving group. Select the statement that properly identifies the nucleophile, substrate, and leaving group. a. CH3I is the substrate, NH2- is the nucleophile, and I- is the leaving group. b. NH2- is the substrate, CH3I is the nucleophile, and I- is the leaving group. c. I- is the substrate, NH2- is the nucleophile, and CH3I is the leaving group.
