Question

Using arrows to show the flow of electrons, write a stepwise mechanism for the reaction given below. [If this reaction proceeds via a mechanism for free-radical chain reaction, give three termination steps and be sure to label each elementary step in your mechanism as either “initiation,” “propagation,” or “termination.”] Recall that HCl in H2O exists as H3O+ and Cl .
