Question

Why is bromine more selective in the site of attack as compared to chlorine when it reacts with alkanes?


Solution

Bromination of alkanes is slower and more selective because a bromine atom is a less reactive hydrogen abstraction agent than a chlorine atom, as reflected by the higher bond energy of H-Cl than H-Br.
