Q.Which compound would give 5-keto-2-methyl hexanal upon ozonlysis?  JEE Main Ofline 2015

Q. In the presence of peroxide, HC: and HI do not give anti-Markownikoff s addition to alkenes because   JEE Main Ofline 2014
(1) All the steps are exothermic in HCI and HI 
(2) One of the steps is endothermic in HCI and HI 
(3) HCI is oxidizing and the HI is reducing 
(4) Both HCI and HI are strong acids 
Solution: 2 
relectivity ratio for bromination is 1° : 2° : 3° : 1 : 82 : 1600 Hence 3° product will be major product. 

Bromides will take part in radical based reactions in the presence of organic peroxides. Fission of the peroxide O-O linkage causes a Br radical which behaves differently to Bromide, by adding to the less substituted side of the alkene(anti – markovnikov). HI and HCl does not do this for energetic reasons. The addition of Cl and I radicals to the alkene in an anti-markovnikov fashion is an endothermic reaction. Hence it is unfavourable. All hydrogen halides will add according to the markovnikov rule, without the presence of peroxide,

NEET & JEE Main  Sample MCQ on Chemistry Hydrocarbons

The important topics related to hydrocarbons are classification, properties, preparation and uses. As far as the NEET, JEE , WBJEE  exam is concerned, hydrocarbon is an very important topic. This article gives an idea of what type of questions can be expected from this topic. advancedchemistry.in provides solutions designed by Mudassar Husain. Students can easily join on whatsapp group to download the solutions in PDF format for free of cost .

1. Which branched chain isomer of the hydrocarbon with molecular mass 72 u gives only one isomer of mono substituted alkyl halide?
(1) Neopentane
(2) Isohexane
(3) Neohexane
(4) Tertiary butyl chloride
Molecular mass indicates that it is pentane. Neopentane can only form one mono substituted alkyl halide as all the hydrogens are equivalent in neopentane.

Hence option (1) is the answer.

Q 2. Which one of the following has the minimum boiling point?
(1) n-Butane
(2) 1-Butyne
(3) 1-Butene
(4) Isobutene
Among the isomeric alkanes, the normal isomer has a higher boiling point than the branched-chain isomer. The higher the branching of the chain, the lower is the boiling point. The n-alkanes have more surface area in comparison to branched-chain isomers. So, intermolecular forces are weaker in branched-chain isomers. Hence they have lower boiling points in comparison to straight-chain isomers.
Hence option (4) is the answer.

Question 3: Which of the following molecules, in pure form, is (are) unstable at room temperature? (IIT JEE 2013)
Answer: b and c
Solution: b and c are anti-aromatic molecules as these contain 4n i.e. 8 TT electrons in ring and hence, these are highly unstable.Anti aromatic
compounds are those for which number of ring TT electrons is equal to 4n (i.e. 4n = 4 or

Question 4: In allene (C3H4), the type(s) of hybridization of the carbon atoms is (are)  (IIT JEE-2011)

a. sp & sp3
b. sp and sp2
c. only sp2
d. sp2 and sp3
Answer: b
Solution: Allene are the molecules in which at least one C has double bonds with each of the adjacent carbon atoms..Structure of the allene C3H4 is
The central carbon forms two sigma and two pi bonds with the two adjacent carbon atoms, so the central carbon is sp and the two terminal carbons are sp2 hybridised.
Hence, the correct option is B.
