Haloalkanes and Haloarenes

Question

Consider the following bromides:



The correct order of SN1 reactivity is 

  • A > B > C

  • B > C > A

  • B > A > C

  • C > B > A

Answer

B.

B > C > A

Higher the stability of carbocation, faster is the reaction because SN1 reactions involve the formation of carbocation intermediate.
