Step by Step Solution

Step-by-Step SolutionStep 1: Chemical reactions of alcohols and ethers

The leaving group capacity of the group in alcohols and O-atom of ethers can be increased by reacting them with ions of strong acid and by converting them into a better leaving group .

In this way, they participate in nucleophilic substitution reactions.

Step 2: Explanation

The given compounds alcohols, thiols, ethers, and epoxides undergo bimolecular nucleophilic substitution reactions. During these reactions, inversion of configuration will be observed around the carbon atom that bears halogen.
