3 alkyl halide always gives elimination product over subs ( SN2). but if i am to use a solvent which doesnot stabilize the carbocation and with a strong nucleophile and weak base what will i get?
i think with a strong base e2 elimination will happen.
also, why do we take aqueous solutions, when we want an alkoxide ion to exist. even though it has na+( from NaOH) water should happily give its proton and thus we can have hydroxide ion reacting thus giving an alcohol ( of the substrate) and not an ether. also there is a considerable conc of hydroxide ion and thus the probability should increase to get an alcohol.
yes i do janardhan thanks
thanks for ur time.
also, this is regarding the 1st question. i was asking that hypothetically considering a strong nucleophile which is not a strong base :
now, as i have taken a non polar solvent, probalitiy of SN1 is approaching 0 and very few amount Of E1.
but having a 3 degree alkyl halide, with a strong nucleophile and say a low temp, can i still get a SN2 reaction even though it is a tert alkyl halide?
