out of the two bromoderivatives which one will undergo SN1 SUBSTITUTION FASTER? C6H5CH(CH3)Br and C6H5CH(C6H5)Br

Expert Answer:

The SN1 substitution reaction involves the formation of carbocation, which is not affected by the presence of bulky groups. Thus, C6H5CH(C6H5)Br will be more reactive towards SN1 substitution reaction forming racemic mixture.
