    In Kaplan book it says that nucleophilicity is in the following order (I havent added the -ve charges to some):

    RO>OH>RCOO>ROH>water

    For polar protic solvents:

    CN>I>RO>OH>Br>Cl>F>water

    My question is that where do amines and double bonds fit in because they are also known as nucleophillic? Would amines be more reactive than all of these?

    WHen I got to that section in Kaplan, I was freaking out also. Here are some past threads regarding nucleophiles:

    Based on the DAT Destroyer, the questions regarding nucleophiles are pretty basic (no pun intended). Therefore, I wouldn't worry too much about it, and focus only on what Kaplan says... no more, no less.
