SN2 reactions are one particular type of nucleophilic substitution where the rate is determined by both the nucleophile and the substrate. They usually have an unhindered substrate (primary or secondary), a strong nucleophile, and a good leaving group. There is also usually inversion of the stereochemistry at the carbon where the substitution takes place.
