  1. Free Radical Halogenation




    One or more H atoms are replaced by halogen atoms (Cl, Br, or I) via free radical substitution. Occurs in Alkanes.

    • Three steps:
    • 1. Initiation
    • 2. Propagation
    • 3. Termination

    • Bromine is slow and picky and attacks most substituted.
    • Chlorine is rapid and attacks primary H with abundance.


  2. Combustion
    Occurs in Alkanes.

    Reaction of alkanes with molecular oxygen.

    Forms CO2, Water, and Heat (desired product)
