# Write the structure and IUPAC name of the major product in the following reaction. CHX3−CH−CH=CHX2+HBr→peroxide|........................CHX3..................... - Chemistry

Write the structure and IUPAC name of the major product in the following reaction.

$\begin{array}{cc} \ce{CH3 - CH - CH = CH2 + HBr ->[peroxide]}\\ |\phantom{........................}\\ \ce{CH3\phantom{.....................}} \end{array}$

#### Solution

$\begin{array}{cc} \ce{CH3 - CH - CH = CH2 + HBr ->[peroxide] CH3 - CH - CH2 - CH2}\\ \phantom{.......}|\phantom{.......................................}|\phantom{...............}|\phantom{}\\ \ce{\phantom{........}CH3}\ce{\phantom{......................}\underset{\text{1-Bromo-3-methylbutane (Major product)}}{CH3}}\ce{Br} \end{array}$
