For example, when HCl adds to propene, 1­chloropropane and 2­ chloropropane are possible. H C 3 H C H3 C H C CH 2 Cl H (about 100% yield) CH + H­Cl 2 H C CH 2 H H C 3 Cl (trace ) · Experimentally, however, we only find one product formed (2­chloropropane). · The reason for this selectiveness lies in the reaction mechanism, the pathway by which a reaction occurs. Addit ion of HCl to alkenes fo llows the fo llowing mechanism: Step 1: H3C 3 H C 2 CH2 + H­Cl 1 H3C H C ­ CH2 + Cl H isopropy l carbocation Step 2: H3C H C H H3C H C CH2 Cl ­ CH2 + Cl H 2­chloropropane 8 Chemistry 52 Chapter 20 MARKOVNIKOV’S R...
