The general kinetics of the interaction of methallyl chloride with CCl4 in the presence of azobisisobutyrodinitrile was studied at 55, 75, and 95°.
The mechanism of the process was considered, and it was hypothesized that certain differences in the reactivity of the intermediate radicals with respect to bimolecular chain transfer and propagation orβ-elimination of a chlorine atom are determined by the long-range steric interactions of the substituents in the transition states of the corresponding reactions.
