Reaction of a Secondary Allyl Chloride with HS -

This subclass of nucleophilic substitution occurs when the nucleophile (HS-) attacks the alkene instead of the saturated carbon - the SN2' mechanism. This is the due to the saturated carbon being hindered (it is a secondary carbon), making the regular SN2 mechanism less favourable.
