Question:

Telfairine, a naturally occurring insecticide, and halomon, an antitumor agent, are two polyhalogenated compounds isolated from red algae.

(a) Classify each halide bonded to an {eq}\displaystyle sp^3 {/eq} hybridized carbon as {eq}\displaystyle 1^\circ, 2^\circ, \ or \ 3^\circ {/eq}.

(b) Label each halide as vinyl, allylic, or neither.

Halomon:

A polyhalogenated monoterpene called halomon was initially discovered in the sea red alga Portieria hornemannii. Halomon's intriguing profile of selective cytotoxicity, which points to its potential application as an anticancer drug, has piqued scientific attention.
