    Which types of reaction are undergone by CH2BrCHCH2?
    1)hydrolysis
    2)free radical substitution
    3)nucleophilic addition

    ok the answer is 1 and 2 but then how can alkenes undergo free radicle substitution ? or is it because of the halogen?
    thank u

    All hydrocarbon chains can substitute H atoms in the presence of UV light and a halogen.

    are you sure the structural formula you've provided is correct

    Probably a double bond between the 2nd and 3rd carbons.

    So its 3-bromoprop-1-ene, since when could alkenes undergo free rad sub, they can undergo Hydrolysis and Electrophillic Addition I know that

    You know a molecule can have multiple functional groups, right?

    Yeah I know about multiple functional groups but in my spec Free Rad Sub is only used when going from an alkane to haloalkane so its unclear
