4.44The equation for the reaction isThe reaction begins with the initiation step in which a chlorine molecule dissociates to two chlorineatoms.A chlorine atom abstracts a hydrogen atom from cyclopropane in the frst propagation step.Cyclopropyl radical reacts with Cl2in the next propagation step.4.45(a)Acid-catalyzed hydrogen–deuterium exchange takes place by a pair of Brønsted acid–basereactions.(b)Base-catalyzed hydrogen–deuterium exchange occurs by a different pair of Brønstedacid–base equilibria.11AcidBaseDODRO2ConjugatebaseDO2ConjugateacidRDO1DOHConjugate
