Dehydrohalogenation

See on Scoop.itPHYSICAL SCIENCES BREAK 1.0

The dehydrohalogenation of 2-bromobutane to form but-2-ene (major product) and but-1-ene (minor product). 

Chipa Thomas Maimela‘s insight:

If more than one product is possible the major product will be the compound where:

the hydrogen atom is removed from the more substituted carbon atom

i.e. the carbon that is bonded to the most number of carbon atoms.
