Abstract

n-Hexane has been chlorinated in the gas phase, with nitrogen as diluent, and in the liquid phase with carbon tetrachloride as a solvent. The relative rates of chlorination at the primary and secondary positions are given by the expressions (ks/kp)gas ≈ 2.2 ± 0.6 exp (214 ± 127 cal./RT) and (ks/kp) liquid = 0.8 ± 0.2 exp (597 ± 20 cal./RT). Possible explanations of this difference are discussed.
