why is ethane formed as a byproduct during chlorination of methane???????
Asked by varshini10 | 16th Mar, 2011, 12:00: AM
Chlorination of methane is a free radical reaction. During the process if two methyl radicals collapse they form ethane. So, ethane is also formed as a byproduct.
We hope that clarifies your query.
