SN1 vs. SN2 - the Soap Drama Version

Today in class, I learned the funniest analogy regarding SN1 and SN2 reactions. Too bad I did not hear of this prior to strict memorizing it. 

SN1 aka “Husband leaves Wife” reaction

SN1

C= wife; L=husband; X,Y,Z = wife’s friends; Nu-=rebound

So the story goes like this: The husband L wants to leave his wife C, and he is slowly packing up his things. The only reason he feels better is because he knows her friends X,Y and Z will be there to support her by donating their electrons to help stabilize her. He knows he will not be able to leave her if she did not have a support group of at least 2 or 3. And he will leave faster if there was more alcohol involved, that is, if there were more single women H+’s in this protic environment, he would leave as soon as he can! Being on the rebound, the wife C picks up anybody Nu- to fill her void. And depending on the type of guy she meets, their relationship can take on different paths, or racemic.

SN2 aka “Two Timer” reaction

SN2

C= wife; L=husband; X,Y,Z = wife’s friends; Nu-=rebound

The wife C is not too happy with her husband L, but she doesn’t want to give him up until she finds someone better. Finally a prospective Nu- comes into her life, she makes sure her relationship with Nu- is stablized first before kicking our her husband L. So at one short point, she is two timing both men. Concertedly, once she sealed the deal with Nu-, she gets rid of her husband L. Since this is not something to be proud of, the wife C does not want to tell her friends X,Y,Z of the situation. Therefore this reaction goes as fast as possible. And since she does not want a lot of people to know, her new boy Nu- would have to come through the backdoor, ie. the backside attack, which results in an inverted product. She does not want this to be in a protic environment, as there would be a lot of single ladies H+ would can lure off her new man Nu-. So she favors a polar aprotic environment to ensure this does not happen, and being polar, it’ll stablize the Nu- in this relationship with her.

Hope you found this funny like I did!

First comes the dream, then comes the struggle, then there is victory! The problem is, most people give up during the struggle… never knowing how close they were to victory! The only way you will fail is if you quit. Never! never! NEVER quit!
