So I learned that SN1 reactions require a polar protic solvent or it won't occur. For E2 I learned that polar aprotic solvents are favored, at least I think. I wasn't sure if it was stated that for an E2 reaction polar aprotic solvents were required or favored like for an SN2 reaction? Could someone help me out.
