Question

$$ CH_3 -CH_2- Cl \, \xrightarrow[\Delta]{Na/ether}$$

Which of the following will be the major product?


A
CH3CH3

B
CH3CH2CH2CH3
loader
C
CH2CH2
loader
D
CH4

Solution

The correct option is B $$ CH_3-CH_2-CH_2-CH_3$$

$$C{H_3} - C{H_2} - Cl + 2Na \to 2C{H_3} - C{H_2} - C{H_2} - C{H_3}$$

The above reaction is Wurtz reaction and it leads to formation of higher alkanes. So butane is formed.

Hence the correct option is option B
