# In the following pairs of halogen compounds, which compound undergoes faster S_N 1 reaction? (ii)

10.8      In the following pairs of halogen compounds, which compound undergoes faster $S_{N}1$ reaction?

(ii)

In $S_{N}1$ reactions, we see the formation of carbocation and this is the rate determining step for these kinds of reactions.So the compound having more stable carbocation will react faster. Hence 2-Chloroheptane will react faster than 1- Chlorohexane.
