Which of the following statements is not correct for SN1 reactions?

  1. A

    The reaction follows first-order kinetics

  2. B

    The nucliophile plays no role in the mechanism

  3. C

    The rate determining step is the conversion of transition state to the product.

  4. D

    The rate of reaction depends on the steric bulk of the alkyl group.

    Solution:

    (a) The rate expression is r = k [haloalkane] 

    (b) Nucleophile is involved in the fast reaction.

    ( c) Substrate ~ Transition state is the slow step.

    (d) Steric bulk favours  SN1mechanism.
