Br A l l hydrogens at the starred positions are equi valent and allylic. T he from the lower ri ght carbon has been removed to make an intermedi ate w i th two non-equivalent resonance forms, giving the two products shown . Drawing the resonance fonns is the
key to answering this question correctly. H ( b) To maxi mize H l and minimize formation of polychloromethanes, the ratio of methane to chlorine must be kept high (see problem 4-2). To guarantee that all hydrogens are replaced with chlorine to produce CCI4, the ratio of chlorine to methane must be kept high. CCH3 CC·l2 H4 CCCH2C\ CCl2 3 CH2Cl2 CCl· CHCl33 Cl2l2 C Cl C 3C
