Problem: True/False. Identify each statements as either True of False. The SN2 reaction of (S)-2-chlorobutane with sodium azide gives a racemic product mixture. In SN1 reactions, the rate determining step is attack of the nucleop`hile. Reactions that have bridged intermediates usually have carbocation rearrangement. Hydrogenation in the presence of Lindlar’s catalyst results in a trans double bond. Fish hook arrows represent single electron transfer. SN1 and E1 reactions have at least 2 transition states in their reaction coordinates. I – (Iodide) is a better nucleophile than F – (Fluoride) in polar protic solvents.
