Chapter 7 Nucleophilic Substitution Reactions

With the foundations have been built on the basic concepts in organic chemistry, we are now ready to learn about organic reactions. Organic reaction is mainly about the transformation of one functional group to the other, that aims to introduce new functional group into the product. As the reactivity center of a compound, a functional group has its unique property and undergoes certain type of reaction. We will explore the certain rules that govern the reactivity of each functional group, and understand why different functional groups show different reactivities. In this chapter, we will start with substitution reaction of alkyl halide, and investigate further more from there.
