They are unimolecular (SN1) and bimolecular substitution (SN2). Tertiary alcohols easily ionize to undergo substitution through SN1 substitution. After ionization, chloride anion attack the carbonium ion to form t-butyl chloride molecule.Add 17mL of t-butyl alcohol to a 125mL separatory funnel (density 0.78g/ml)Next, add 35mL of 37%HCl (density = 1.18g/mL). Shake gently to ensure thorough reaction. Open stopper
