CHEM 232 – Expt#11 Relative Rates of Free-Radical Bromination Post-Lab Questions Post-Lab Questions: Answer the post-lab questions on the back of the report sheet neatly and concisely. Use a blank sheet of paper if more space is needed. Your answer will be graded based on the quality of the answer not the quantity. You are expected to complete these post-lab questions independently as you would any other take-home assignment. All responses must be written in ink. Any lab report written in pencil will not be eligible for re-grade or if a white out was used on the lab report. 1. Consider the molecule given below. How many hydrogens on this molecule could theoretically be substituted by Br in a free radical bromination – circle them. Put an asterisk to mark the one most likely to be substituted first. (6 pts) 2. When toluene is used in free radical bromination, a very small amount of product is formed that contains only carbons and hydrogens and no bromine. Show the structure of that product and the arrow curved mechanism of how it is formed starting from the alkyl radical intermediate of the reaction. (9 pts) 3. Free radical Brormination is a slower reaction than chlorination but it is a synthetic route often used to make alky bromides. Alkyl fluorides are not made by Free Radical Halongenation. Explain why free radical Fluorination is not a viable route of synthesis for these compounds (show your work to support your claim all math calculations). (5 pts).
