Chlorination (halogenation) of methane. Industrially, high temperature rather than a radical initiator is used. The reaction is exothermic and there is an explosion hazard.The reaction gives mixtures of chlorinated products: chloromethane, dichloromethane (methylene chloride), trichloromethane (chloroform), tetrachloromethane (carbon tetrachloride), as well as small amounts of chlorinated ethanes etc.
