You got it right.Since my exam was standardized, we don't get to see the answers..just our scores.
This is going to bug me so I thought I would ask you guys. On the ACS there was a question where they asked which halide would readily undergo SN2 and SN1...I don't remember the choices completely, but I think they were something like:
A. first degree allylic halide
B. a halide on a double bond
C. a regular primary halide
D. A tertiary halide
I picked (A) the allylic primary halide..but that was a guess. SN1 doesn't normally undergo primary, but it could possibly rearrange right? If a second degree carbon was on there, I would have picked that. I just want to know because this is a pretty good question and I might see it on the DAT.
