Problem

In both the following exercises, assume that all the methylene groups in the alkane are equally reactive as sites of free-radical chlorination. 

(a) Photochemical chlorination of heptane gave a mixture of monochlorides containing 15% 1-chloroheptane. What other monochlorides are present? Estimate the percentage of each of these additional C 7 H 15 Cl isomers in the monochloride fraction.
