Problem

Draw the mechanism of the following SN1 processes: 

Solution

We’re being asked to draw the mechanism for the given SN1 reaction.



Recall that the SN1 reaction occurs in two steps:

(1) carbocation formation – the carbon-leaving group bond is broken

(2) nucleophilic attack – the nucleophile donates its electron to the positively-charged carbon (electrophile)


Since we have a neutral nucleophile, there will be an additional step:

(3) deprotonation – the leaving group will remove a proton/hydrogen from the product
