What are Substitution Reactions?

This post will go through substitution reactions for QCE Chemistry.

4.1.3 – Organic Reactions and Reaction Pathways

  • Describe, using equations:
    ­- Substitution reactions of alkanes with halogens
    ­ – Substitution reactions of haloalkanes with halogens, sodium hydroxide,
    ammonia and potassium cyanide
     

Substitution Reactions

From an earlier post we saw that saturated organic compounds, alkanes, go through substitution reactions where hydrogens get switched with another group.

This video is a brief overview of substitution reaction.

 

This video goes through haloalkanes and sodium hydroxide, ammonia and potassium cyanide substitution reactions. The mechanisms are outside of the scope of this course (i.e, anything with arrows moving around, just remember the equations).
