A comparative study of the kinetics of the solvolysis of α-bromo ketones of the selenophene, thiophene, and benzene series in 50% ethanol at 55, 70, and 80°C has been performed. The activation parameters of the reactions have been determined and it has been shown that solvolysis takes place mainly by an SN2 mechanism. The rate of solvolysis rises in the sequence selenophene → thiophene → benzene.
