Draw the major organic product(s) of the following reaction. DMF Br KCN You do not have to consider stereochemistry. If no reaction occurs, draw the starting material. When SN1 & E1 pathways compete, show both the substitution and the elimination products Separate multiple products using the sign from the dropdown menu Do not include counter-ions, e.g. Na I in your answer.
Although CN- is nucleophilic in nature, the sp3 hybridized carbon attached to the bromine is less electrophilic and hence the reaction cannot occur between KCN and 1-bromobutene.
Hence the product is just a starting material
