Problem: Indicate the general type of reaction represented in each the following reactions: (options: elimination, substitution, acid-base, addition, oxidation-reduction)

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to indicate the general type of reaction represented in each of the following reactions.


Recall the general types of organic reactions: 

• Substitution - replaces a leaving group with another group or atom.

• Elimination - removes a leaving group and produces an alkene

• Addition - starts with an alkene then removes the double bond to add groups

• Acid-Base - involves transferring of protons

• Oxidation-Reduction - involves adding or subtracting equivalents of oxygen
