Bromination of an alkene by N-bromosuccinimide (NBS) in the presence of light or peroxide is a radical reaction and produces an allylic bromide. For the following bromination of 3-methylcyclopentene, which of the following allylic bromides would be products of the reaction?
In some other reactions such as elimination, there is a tendency to form the most substituted double bond, since it is the most stable. If that were the case, then the products should be A, E, F, and G, since these are all trisubstituted alkenes (the others are disubstituted). Is that a valid consideration here, or is there a different overriding rule?
