Chapter 15 Worksheet Consider the reaction below to answer the questions 1-3 : 1 . When propylbenzene reacts with tert -butylhypochlorite three monochlorinated products are formed in the ratios indicated. Calculate a reactivity order for each type of hydrogen atom in propylbenzene. 2. The reaction of propylbenzene with tert -butylhypochlorite proceeds by a radical substitution pathway. Draw the structure of the radical intermediate leading to each product. 3. Based on your answers to the two questions above explain why (1-chloropropyl) benzene is the major product of this reaction. 4. Write a stepwise mechanism that shows how a very small amount of CH 3 CH 2 Cl could form during the chlorination of CH 4 . Done by Dr. Felix N.
