What will happen if two different alkyl halides are taken in Wurtz reaction?


If two different alkyl halides are used in the Wurtz reaction to prepare an alkane with an odd number of carbon atoms, then a mixture of three alkanes is produced. It is because the two alkyl halides in addition to reacting with each other also react among themselves giving a mixture of three alkanes.
