Problem 3P

Each of the following proposed mechanisms for the free-radical chlorination of methane is wrong. Explain how the experimental evidence disproves each mechanism.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 3P:

Here, we are going to describe about the experimental evidence for each mechanism.

Step 1: (a)

It requires only one photon of light to generate CH3Cl. Thus the quantum yield for the reaction is only 1.0.

Quantum yield =

But, in actual, the quantum yield is so high which is more than several hundred. Thus, the high quantum yield indicates about a chain reaction.

Therefore, the above reaction is not a chain reaction. It has no propagation steps.
