    For #175 in the 2011 DAT destroyer


    What do an E1 and SN1 have in common

    a) rate law
    b) both share the same carbocation
    c) both are favored by 3 prime substrates
    d) two of these
    e) all of these


    I put d because I believed that they have the same rate law and both favored by 3 prime substrates. However, the book says that it is all.

    How can E1 and SN1 have a carbocation? I thought only SN2 and E2 reactions formed a carbocation. Don't E1 and SN1 reactions happen to fast to even produce a carbocation?

    you're have it reversed

    sn2/e2 happen very quickly not e1/sn1.
