Investigate the stability of reactions using Markovnikov’s rule.
Build a propene molecule and optimize its geometry. Compare the relative energy of bromine-hydrogen substitution in either 1°-carbon or 2°-carbon of the carbon-carbon double bond. Which of these two bromopropane compounds will be the major product of a propene bromination reaction?
