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
