Predict the major product of the following reaction, and give a mechanism to support your prediction.
Step 1 </p>
In the reaction given ethylbenzene reacts with N-Bromosuccinimide in presence of light to the product .
We have to find the product and mechanism involved in the reaction .
Step 2</p>N-Bromosuccinimide (NBS)
N-Bromosuccinimide (NBS) is a brominating and oxidizing agent that is used as source for bromine in radical reactions (for example: allylic brominations) and various electrophilic additions. The NBS bromination of substrates such as alcohols and amines, followed by elimination of HBr in the presence of a base, leads to the products of net oxidation in which no bromine has been incorporated.
