Major Product vs Minor Product

Postby Michael_Johanis_2K » Sat Mar 18, 2017 8:04 pm

For electrophilic addition, 2-methyl-1-butene + HBr -----> 2-bromo-2-methylbutane OR 1-bromo-2-methylbutane.

Does it matter which one we write? Should we write both? Do we have to know the distinction between minor product and major product? I think I remember hearing that Chem 14C covers where we add the Br.

i came across this as well and I think that writing both would be safe but I dont think it matters if you have one or the other
