Consider the photohalogen
ation of 2,3

dimethylbutane using Br
2
and Cl
2
.
a) Draw the possible monohalogenated (C
6
H
13
X) products when X = Cl or Br.
b) Given that 3° hydrogens are 5.2 times more reactive than 1° hydrogens towards
abstraction by chlorine atoms, calculate the e
xpected ratio of monochlorinated
products formed.
c) Given that 3° hydrogens are 1640 times more reactive than 1° hydrogens
towards abstraction by bromine atoms, calculate the expected ratio of
monobrominated products formed.
