## How do you find the number of Monochloro derivatives?

You can get 5 monochloro derivative of n-pentane. The structure of n-pentane is somewhat like this CH3-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH3. Monochloro derivatives means C-12 sharing at least and at most one chlorine bond. In an alkane every C atom can have at least and at most one chlorine bond.

### How many structural Monochloro derivatives are possible for the given compound?

Only two isomeric monochloro derivatives are possible for.

**How many Monochloro products can be formed from the following?**

At this position, 2 stereoisomers are formed, as chlo- rine attacks the compound from the front and back side . The 2 stereoisomers formed are S-2 chlorobutane and R-2 chlorobutane. Hence, the total number of monochloro products (including stereoisomers), which are possible is 3.

**How many Monochloro derivatives are possible for n Pentane?**

Therefore, chlorination of n-pentane,isopentane and neopentane form three, four and one monochloro derivatives respectively.

## How many Monochloro derivatives are possible for n hexane?

The molecular structure of hexane, On chlorination, one hydrogen atom in the hexane is replaced by chlorine atom to give monochloro derivatives. Hexane on monochlorination gives two derivatives which mean there must be two different hydrogen atoms for two monochloro derivatives to form.

### How many Monochloro derivatives are possible for 3 Methylpentane?

four monochloro derivatives

> There are four monochloro derivatives for $\text{3-methylpentane}$.

**How many Monochloro derivatives are possible for pentane?**

**How many Monochloro derivatives are obtained in cyclohexane?**

Six monochloro derivatives are possible corresponding to six types of hydrogen substituted by chlorine atoms.

## How many Monochloro derivatives are formed by the reaction of isopentane with cl2?

The number of monochloro derivatives formed by the action of chlorine on isopentane is 5.

### How many Monochloro derivatives are possible for methylcyclohexane?

Five structural isomers can be formed by monochlorination of methylcyclohexane.

**How many Monochloro derivatives of anthracene are possible?**

Three monochloro derivatives of anthracene are possible.

**How many Monochloro derivatives are obtained by the chlorination of ethane?**

1. Free Radical Halogenation Of Methane And Ethane Can Give Only One Monochlorinated Product.
