Rate and Selectivity in Radical Chain Reactions, Reactivity Selectivity Principle - Freshman Organic Chemistry - Michael McBride - Lecture 3 of 38 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Organic Chemistry

Description: The reactivity-selectivity principle explains why bromine atoms are more selective that chlorine atoms in abstracting hydrogen atoms from carbon. A free-radical mechanism for adding HBr to alkenes explains its anti-Markovnikov regiospecificity. Careful analysis is required to understand kinetic order for reactions involving catalysts.
