The interaction of n-butane with chlorine proceeds

Check all correct answers.

Halogenation of alkanes proceeds by a radical mechanism. To initiate the reaction mixture of halogen alkane is irradiated with UV light or heated. Chloration of alkanes results in a product mixture of hydrogen substitution on different carbon atoms.


M, N, X, Y and Z are five hydrocarbons.

What do compounds M, N, X, Y and Z have in common?

All of them are alkanes and all of them are part of the same homologous series.

With which of three substances can 1-Butene react?

1-Butene can react with \(H_2O, HBr, KMnO_4\)

1) Hydration reaction proceeds in the presence of sulfuric acid:

\(CH_2=CH-CH_2-CH_3 + H_2O\to CH_3-CH(OH)-CH_2-CH_3\)

2) Radical addition reaction:

\(CH_2=CH-CH_2-CH_3 + HBr \to CH_3-CHBr-CH_2-CH_3\)

3) Oxidation of inorganic oxidants:

\(3CH_2=CH-CH_2-CH_3 + 2KMnO_4 + 4H_2O \to CH_2(OH)-CH(OH)-CH_2-CH_3 +2KOH + 2MnO_2\)



1-propanol can be prepared in the laboratory by reacting:

1-propanol is formed by the reaction of 1-chloropropane with aqueous alkali solution. Halogen substitution reaction occurs on hydroxide ions.

Crude oil

Do the components of crude oil have no chemical transformation?

The physical process of separating crude oil into fractions on the basis of differences in the temperatures of boiling of the components is distillation. Cracking and reforming are chemical reactions.

Introduction to organic chemistry

In what organic compounds does carbon form a double bond?

The correct answer are alkenes

Introduction to organic chemistry

Select the formula in which all four atoms of carbon have \(sp^2-\) and hybridization occurs.

The correct answer is \(CH_2=CH-CH=CH_2\)

Introduction to organic chemistry

Determine the hybridization of carbon atoms in the carbon dioxide molecule.

The carbon atom forms bonds in the excited state in which it has four unpaired electrons: \(2s^12p^3\). In the formation of ties \(sp-\)hybridization of orbitals occurs. Hybrid orbitals are directed along a straight line to the opposite side of the atomic nucleus, and two remaining clean (non-hybrid) p-orbitals are perpendicular to each other and to the hybrid orbitals. All of the orbitals (hybrid and non-hybrid) contain one unpaired electron each.

Each oxygen atom having two unpaired electrons in two mutually perpendicular p-orbitals is attached to a carbon atom with \(\sigma\)-bond, and \(\pi\)-coupling: \(\sigma\)-bond is formed with the help of hybrid carbon orbitals and \(\pi\)-bond is formed by overlapping of clean p-orbitals of carbon and oxygen atoms.
