Q 6. Which chloride is least reactive with the hydrolysis point of view ?

A

B

C

##### Explanation

The halogen atom in vinyl chloride is not reactive as in other alkyl halides. The non-reactivity of chlorine atom is due to resonance stabilisation. The 1.p. on Cl- atom can participate in delocalisation (Resonance) to give two canonical structure

Q 12. Aryl halide is less reactive than alkyl halide towards nucleophilic substitution because:

A

of less stable carbonium ion

due to large C-Cl bond energy

C

of inductive effect

D

of resonance stabilization and sp2 hybridization of C attached to halide

##### Explanation

Aryl halide is less reactive than alkyl halide towards nucleophilic substitution because of the resonance stabilization and sp2 hybridization of C attached to halide. Due to resonance, carbon-chlorine bond acquires partial double bond character, hence it becomes shorter and stronger, and thus, cannot be easily replaced by nucleophiles. This effect is further enhanced by the sp2 nature of the C atom to which chlorine is attached.

Q 14. Chloropicrin is a strong lachrymatory compound and is used in war. It is prepared by:

A

heating acetone with chloroform in the presence of dilute NaOH.

heating chloroform with {tex} \mathrm { HNO } _ { 3 } {/tex}

C

heating nitormethane with carbon tetrachloride.

D

the reaction of acetylene and arsenic chloride.

##### Explanation

Because of the precursor used, Stenhouse named the compound chloropicrin, although the two compounds are structurally dissimilar. Today, chloropicrin is manufactured by the reaction of nitromethane with sodium hypochlorite H3CNO2 + 3 NaOCl → Cl3CNO2 + 3 NaOH or by the reaction of chloroform with nitric acid CHCl3 + HNO3 → CCl3NO2 + H2O
