MCQ

Which among the following is a set of nucleophiles?

Options

  • H+, NH3, Cl

  • BF3, H2O, NH3

  • AlCl3, BF3, NH3

  • CN, H2O, R–OH

Solution

CN, H2O, R–OH

Explanation:

All molecules or ions with free pair of electrons or at least one n-bond can act as nucleophiles.

Among given species CN, \[\ce{H2\overset{\bullet\bullet}{\underset{\bullet\bullet}{O}}}\] and \[\ce{R-\overset{\bullet\bullet}{\underset{\bullet\bullet}{O}}H}\] are nucleophiles.
