Problem: Which of the following statements is TRUE regarding the radical chain reaction of diatomic iodine in excess alkane: a. Would lead to a fully polyiodonized alkane products unless reacted in excess alkane. b. Would yield mostly monoiodonized alkanes due to the high bond dissociation energy of diatomic iodine and its very high selectivity. c. Iodine is NOT used in radical halogenation due to its extremely high reactivity. It can lead to lab explosions. d. More than one of the above is true e. None of the above are true
