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 nucleophile. 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.
