Problem 57SP

Problem 57SP

Iodination of alkanes using iodine (I2) is usually an unfavorable reaction. (See Problem 4-17, for example.) Tetraiodomethane (CI4) can be used as the iodine source for iodination, in the presence of a free-radical initiator such as hydrogen peroxide. Propose a mechanism (involving mildly exothermic propagation steps) for the following proposed reaction. Calculate the value of  for each of the steps in your proposed mechanism.

The following bond-dissociation energies may be helpful:

(a) Using the BDEs in Table 4-2 (p. 143), compute the value of ΔH° for each step in the iodination of methane.

Reference: Problem 4-17:

(b) Compute the overall value of ΔH° for iodination.

(c) Suggest two reasons why iodine does not react well with methane.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution  57SP

Here, we are going to calculate the value of  for each of the steps in your proposed mechanism.

Step 1:

Mechanism

Here, Bond dissociation energy of bonds broken :

HO-OH = 213 kJ/mol

I-CI3 = 188 kJ/mol

Bond dissociation energy for bonds formed :

HO-I = 234 kJ/mol

o = [Bond dissociation energy for bonds broken] -[Bond dissociation energy for bonds formed]

        = +188 kJ/mol - 234 kJ/mol = -46.0 kJ/mol
