Which of the following statements is true of the E1 mechanism?
Rearrangement is often observed in E1 elimination reaction.
The reaction that follows E1 mechanism is first order, which mean only the concentration of the base can influence the reaction rate.
The leaving group has little influence on the reaction rate.
There are two steps in a basic E1 mechanism and the energy barrier of the second step is higher than that of the first step.
