Organic chemistry problem

  1. Apr 2, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is the product when 1,1,4,4-tetra D cyclohexane
    is treated with SO2Cl2






    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm confused whether Cl will replace D or H (it must replace any one of them)

    What are the conditions. Heat, light or peroxide?

    Sorry for that. Peroxide is present.

    free radical chlorination is a well known reaction with SOCl2. There are 12 positions that can be chlorinated, 4 of them are deuterated. What effect would doubling the mass of the hydrogen have on the reaction? What effect would doubling the mass of a hydrogen have on the stability of a 2nd degree radical?
