Question:

Give the structure and name of the product produced from the reaction of cis-2-butene with {eq}Br_2 {/eq}.

Bromination Reaction:

The reaction of bromine molecule with C-C double bond is known as bromination reaction. It takes place with the carbon tetrachloride and via the formation of a three-membered transition state.

Answer and Explanation: 1

The reaction of cis-2-butene with bromine molecule is stereospecific i.e., products of different stereochemistry will be formed. The name and structure of the product formed by the reaction of cis-2-butene and bromine are given below.
