Question

Correct order of nucleophilicity is:


A
CH3<NH2<OH<F
loader
B
F<OH<CH3<NH2
loader
C
OH<NH2<F<CH3
loader
D
F<OH<NH2<CH3
loader

Solution

The correct option is D $$F^{-}< OH^{-} < N{H}^{-}_{2}< C{H}^{-}_{3}$$
As electronegativity of the central atom decreases, its nucleophilicity increases. Here, carbon has the least electronegativity. So, $$C{H}_3^{-}$$ will have the highest nucleophilicity.
So, the correct order is $$F^{-}< OH^{-} < N{H}^{-}_{2}< C{H}^{-}_{3}$$.
