iodoform is formed through a nucleophilic substituation. Is it SN1, SN2 or neither?
If it is neither what is the name of its mechanism?

iodoform tests for the presence of CH3CO group in ketones or aldehydes. the iodoform is formed simply by nucleophilic substitution on the carbonyl, not sn1 or sn2(as these are sp2 centre)
