Polar Protic, Aprotic, and Non-Polar Solvents in Substitution and Elimination Reactions tutorial videoSN1 SN2 E1 Series: Video 6
Solvents play a key role in SN1 SN2 E1 and E2 reactions. But instead of memorizing, I want you to understand what makes a solvent polar, and what makes a polar solvent protic or aprotic.

By understanding how the solvent interacts with theĀ intermediates you’ll have an easier time predicting substitution and elimination reactions.
