Ochem substitution and Elimination

aprotic solvent A solvent that does not have Hydrogen, therefore no H-bonding will occur.
aprotic polar solvent solvents that lack an acidic hydrogen these compounds have high dielectric constants and high dipole moments. Great for Sn2 reactions. Examples: DMF, HMPA, DMSO
base A molecule who's interactions are determined by acid base equilibrium
basicity Strength of a base: determined by size and electronegativity
back-side attack When a nucleophile interacts with a reactant that is sp3 hybridized it must approach from the opposite side of the leaving group in order for enough orbital overlap to occur for bonding
bifunctional molecule
complete racemization
dielectric constant
elimination reaction

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
