Chlorination of BUTANE: Here’s the mechanism for formation of the major product for BUTANE (note this is NOT our exact starting material here today but a good example of how to draw a radical mechanism!) Cl Cl init prop prop (and form product) this is the most important step and why radical rxns are so efficient! Cl 2 H Cl must show a C-H bond since this is what you are breaking! H Cl + Cl Cl Cl + Cl hv or heat Then of course there are multiple possible termination steps:
