For the reaction of CH3CH2CH2Cl with an excess of ammonia, name and outline the mechanism and name the organic product.

If you're doing AQA, this is actually a mechanism from AS! CH3CH2CH2Cl is the haloalkane 1-chloropropane and the ammonia is the nucleophile. Therefore, the ammonia substitutes the chlorine. The excess ammonia takes one of the hydrogens from the original ammonia (now attached to the carbon chain) to become an ammonium ion. Hope this helps!
