A typical yield ratio for the 2-butanol reaction is 25% chloride and 75% bromide.
Consider this before answering the following questions.

Please select which mechanism the substitution of 2-butanol follows.

a. SN2 with significant SN1
b.Can't tell
d. SN1 with significant SN2
e. Mainly SN2
f. SN1
g. Mainly SN1

anyone has any idea?thank you.

The answer is A. SN1 reactions will be more difficult due to steric hindrance but will still occur. SN2 reactions should be a little more easy than SN1. SN2 mechanism will proceed through a fairly stable secondary carbocation. Good luck
