WHY BENZYLLIC HALIDES UNDERGOES SN1 AND NOT SN2?
Asked by AKHIL JAIN | 9th Feb, 2011, 12:00: AM
Benzyl halides react quickly by SN1 reactions because their carbocations are unusually stable due to their resonance forms which delocalize charge over an extended p system.
We hope that clarifies your query.
