Answer to Question #27996 in Organic Chemistry for Chandan
what happens when 1 propene is treated with hbr
When one propene is treated with HBr, the reaction occurs at the Markovnikov rule, which states that the proton is attached to the most hydrogenated carbon atom.
Write the reaction:
CH2=CH-CH3 + HBr --> CH3-CH(Br)-CH3
In the presence of peroxides can be a reaction against the Markovnikov rule:
CH2=CH-CH3 + HBr => (ROOR) => CH2(Br)-CH2-CH3
