Expert Answer

Step 1

The replacement of any atom or group of atoms by a nucleophile is termed as nucleophilic substitution reaction.

Step 2

Unimolecular substitution reaction are those reactions in which the rate of reaction depends only on the concentration of one reactant species that is known as unimolecular reaction.

SN1 reaction occurs in two steps. The first step involves the formation of carbocation and second step involves nucleophilic attack on the intermediate formed.

Step 3

In first reaction, CH3OH is a nucleophile and OTos present in reactant side which is a better leaving group therefore OTos leaves easily and ...
