For the following SN2 reaction, draw the organic and inorganic products of the reaction, and identify the nucleophile, substrate, and leaving group. Include wedge/dash bonds and H on a stereocenter.
Select the statement that property identifies the nucleophile, substrate, and leaving group.
a. Cl- is the substrate, CH3CH(CH2)2CH3Cl is the nucleophile, and CN- is the leaving group.
b. CH3CH(CH2)2CH3Cl is the substrate. CN- is the nucleophile. and Cl- is the leaving group.
c. CN- is the substrate. Cl- is the nucleophile, and CH3CH(CH2)2CH3Cl is the leaving group.
