apparently 3-bromobut-1-ene and 1-bromobut-2-ene undergo sn1 reactions at the same rate because they form the same allyic carbocation according to my text book, how is this achieved?

If you draw out each molecule and then have Br- leave you'll see that they are the carbocation
hint: the intermediate has two resonance formsLast edited by EierVonSatan; 24-12-2010 at 01:59.

have you done anything on carbocations adjacent to double bonds?
