Isopentane chlorine substitution reaction
« on: March 04, 2021, 09:54:13 AM »
Hello everyone,,
I have a question. Lets say we have isopentane and Cl2 in a substitution reaction. How many different Carbon atoms can chlorine atom bond with? All five or can it substitute with a hydrogen that bonded to methyl brach?

It is an easy question maybe but please answer that is really important for me.

Thanks for your consideration..

All can be substituted. But C 2 and C 3 will be preferred. Tell us why.
