  • question_answer Addition of HCl to vinyl chloride gives 1, 1-dichloroethane because of [MP PET 2004]

    A) Mesomeric effect of Cl

    B) Inductive effect of Cl

    C) Restricted rotation around double bond

    D) None of these

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    \[\underset{Cl\ \ }{\overset{C{{H}_{2}}}{\mathop{\underset{|}{\overset{||}{\mathop{C}}}\,H}}}\,+HCl\ \ \ \ \to \underset{\begin{smallmatrix}   \\  (\text{1, 1 dichloroethane}) \end{smallmatrix}}{\mathop{\underset{CH\ \,}{\overset{C{{H}_{3}}}{\mathop{|\ \ \ \ \ }}}\,<_{Cl}^{Cl}}}\,\] It is addition reaction. Which is according to Markownikoff rule.
