Question

Using arrows to show the flow of electrons, give a stepwise mechanism for the free-radical chain reaction shown to the right. Give each intiation step and each propagation step. Give four (4) termination steps; be sure that one of the four termination steps that you give is a disproportionation reaction.Clearly show stereochemistry in each elementary step that you give in the mechanism.
