The Rate of Hydrolysis of Haloalkanes by Nucleophilic Substitution

In this video, we look at the rate of hydrolysis of haloalkanes by nucleophilic substitution. First we look at how we can use aqueous silver nitrate to measure the rate of hydrolysis of haloalkanes. We then look at how the rate of hydrolysis is affected by the halogen present.
