Classify the following reactions as either Substiution (S), Addition (A), Elimination (E), or Rearrangement (R).
We’re being asked to classify each reaction as Substitution (S), Addition (A), Elimination (E), or Rearrangement (R).
Recall that the four types of organic reactions are:
• Substitution: an atom or group of atoms are exchanged
• Addition: a π bond becomes two σ bonds
• Elimination: two σ bonds are removed to create a π bond
• Rearrangement: a reaction where a constitutional isomer is produced
