Question

The position of Br in the compound in  CH3CH=CHC(Br)(CH3)2  can be classified as ........

(a) allyl       (b) aryl        (c) vinyl         (d) secondary


Solution

Answer: (a) It is an allylic compound in which Br is attached next to double bonded carbon.

The allyl halides are those compounds in which the halogen atom is bonded to sp3 hybridized carbon atom next to carbon-double bond.

e.g.,             CH2=CHCH2XandCH3CH=CHC(Br)(CH3)2

Aryl halides are the compounds in which the halogen atom is bonded to the sp2 hybridized carbon atom of an aromatic ring.

e.g., 

Vinyl halides are the compounds in which the halogen atom is bonded to the sp2 hybridized carbon atom of a carbon-carbon double bond.

e.g., CH2=CHX

Secondary alkyl halides are the compounds in which the halogen atom is bonded to the sp3 hybridized carbon atom which is further bonded to two alkyl groups and one hydrogen atom.

e.g.,
