Leah here from leah4sci.com and in this video we’ll continue our discussion of common Organic Chemistry Mechanism Patterns. In part 1, we looked at the Nucleophilic attack and Loss of a leaving group. If you missed that, you can find the entire series on my website leah4sci.com/mechanism. The third common mechanism pattern is the Proton
