Solvolysis rate constants for methylchloroformate, $CH_3O$(CO)Cl, methylthiono-chloroformate, $CH_3O$(CS)Cl, and methylthiolchloroformate, $CH_3S$(CO)Cl, have been determined conductometrically in acetone-water and acetonitrile-water mixtures, and activation parameters, ${\Delta}H^{\neq}$ and ${\Delta}S^{\neq}$, have been derived. Results show that in water-rich regions the order of rate increases as $$CH_3O(CO)Cl while in dipolar aprotic solvent-rich region this order reverses. The plots of log k vs. solvent parameters, Y, $\frac{D-1}{2D+1}$ and log($H_2$) show that the order of rate increase in water-rich region is the results of increase in $S_N1$ character. It is concluded that $CH_3S$(CO)Cl solvolyzes via $S_N1$ mechanism whereas $CH_3O$(CO)Cl reacts via $S_N2$ and $CH_3O$(CS)Cl via intermediate mechanism in water-rich region.
