Problem 6.35

Imagine substituting, in turn, each hydrogen atom of 3-methylpentane with a chlorine atom to give a series of isomers with molecular formula C6H13Cl. Give the structure of each of these isomers. Which of these are chiral? Classify the relationship of each stereoisomer with every other

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Chlorination of 3-methylpentane with a chlorine atom gives a series of isomers includingstereoisomers. Free radical chlorination will occur in the presence of UV light or veryhigh temperatures.There are 4 constitutional isomers, in which two are chiral. The structure of the 4constitutional isomers are:The stereoisomers are:1-Chloro-3-methyl pentane is chiral. In 1-chloro-3-methyl pentane, there is only oneasymmetric center and so the number of stereoisomers is 2. This is because the formula nfor the number of stereoisomers is 2 where’n’ is the number of asymmetric centers.Therefore, two structures from this isomer.2-Chloro-3-methyl pentane is chiral. In 2-chloro-3-methyl pentane, there are twoasymmetric centers and so the number of stereoisomers is 4. Therefore, four structuresfrom this isomer.3-Chloro-3-methyl pentane is not chiral.3-(Chloromethyl) pentane is not chiral.The major product in the reaction is 3-chloro-3-methyl pentane as the chlorination occursat the most substituted center.
