Question

# $$CH_3 -CH_2- Cl \, \xrightarrow[\Delta]{Na/ether}$$Which of the following will be the major product?

A
CH3CH3
B
CH3CH2CH2CH3
C
CH2CH2
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 BChemistry
