Abstract: With thionyl chloride SOCl2 as HCl precursor, 1-methylcyclohexene is hydrochlorinated. In the absence of a solid catalyst, between half and two-thirds of the product mixture are the anti-Markovnikov adduct, trans 1-chloro-2-methylcyclohexane. Catalysis by the ZF520 zeolite or the K10 montmorillonite makes the reaction selective. It then affords a quantitative yield of (10:1) Markovnikov adduct 1-chloro-1-methylcyclohexane.

Keywords: Markovnikov, Anti-Markovnikov, Ionic, Radical, High Yield and Selectivity
