Please help me understand:
When 2-butene reacts with hydrogenchloride gas, only one product is detected, whereas when 1-butene reacts similarly, two productsare usually found. Explain this.
The structure of 2-butene is this:
You start counting from the end of the molecule, and count carbons until you get to the beginning of the double bond. Therefore, this compound is …
This solution shows the structural formula of 2-butene and details its reaction mechanism with hydrogen chloride gas as well as the final product. All steps are shown with explanations.
