E1

E1 (Elimination, unimolecular) is an elimination mechanism where the rate-determining step is loss of a leaving group to give a carbocation, followed by rapid loss of H+ to give an alkene. Since the rate-limiting step involves only the substrate, the rate law is unimolecular. Like the SN1, the rate of the E1 is primarily determined by carbocation stability.
