Question

# Correct order of nucleophilicity is:

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

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 $$F^{-}< OH^{-} < N{H}^{-}_{2}< C{H}^{-}_{3}$$.Chemistry
