In reaction of Alcohol with PCl5 does it underdo inversion or retention?
Inversion btw how much u got in mt10 @Soumyadeep
But my old teacher once gave that it goes with retention. Is there some specific condition where it might go with retention too?
It follows the same mechanism as pcl3 in which later Cl- attacks via sn2 so inversion
Yes it can undergo SN i
but at low temperatures.
If not specifically mentioned go for SN2
Can u show mech for sni using pcl3
I just know about SoCl2
