Substitution and Elimination reactions are potentially the most difficult topic at the Organic Chemistry 1 Level. Unlike other reactions which follow similar patterns, with the SN1/SN2/E1/E2 reactions you are faced with different circumstances for similar molecules and asked to choose a reaction pathway.
The average cheat sheet gives you a ‘memorize without logic’ roadmap, which in my opinion, does NOT help for tricky questions. And so I’ve put together this ‘logic-based’ cheat sheet, to help you understand and recognize what you’re looking at with reactions. This is a quick reference, for detailed tutorials on each individual concept, 20+ video series on Substitution and Elimination reactions
I put in countless hours to compile this cheat sheet. If you find it helpful please share using the facebook/twitter… icons above, and leave a comment below letting me know what you like most about it.
