Problem 29

Carbon tetrachloride was widely used for many years as a solvent until its harmful properties became well established. Carbon tetrachloride may be prepared by the reaction of natural gas (methane, CH4) and elemental chlorine gas in the presence of ultraviolet light. Write the unbalanced chemical equation for this process.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Bronsted-Lory Acid: A proton donor, a molecule which contains an acidic H Bronsted-Lory Base: A proton acceptor, a molecule which can form a bond to a proton ✦ Water can serve as an ACID or base: Example: The ammonia ( ) uses it's lone pair of e-s to form a new bond to the proton & is acting as a proton acceptor & water as a proton donor. FLOW OF ELECTRON DENSITY : CRUVED-ARROW NOTATION: Ion reaction: A reaction in which ions participate as reactants, intermediates, or products. ✦ All reactions are accomplished via a flow of electron density (motion of electrons) "Curved arrows" illustrate the flow of e- density that causes a proton
