Homework Help: Isopentane Cl2 substitution reaction

  1. Jun 22, 2014 #1

    I have a question. Lets say we have isopentane and Cl2 in a substitution reaction. How many different Carbon atoms can chlorine atom bond with? All five or can it substitute with a hydrogen that bonded to methyl brach?

    It is an easy question maybe but please answer that is really important for me.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Theoretically? Or practically? Why not try drawing out all, naming them and seeing if they're different?
