# 10.10     Predict all the alkenes that would be formed by dehydrohalogenation of the following halides with sodium ethoxide in ethanol and identify the major alkene:           (ii)     2-Chloro-2-methylbutane

(ii)

In this compound we have two kind of $\beta$ hydrogen. So dehalogenation will give two kind of alkenes, namely 2-Methylbut-2-ene and 2-Methylbut-1-ene.

The major product of this reaction will be 2-Methylbut-2-ene as the number of $\alpha$ - hydrogens attached to double bonded carbon are more in case of this compound.
