Mechanism of Halogenation of alkane - definition

Alkanes react with halogens such as Cl, I, Br differently. With Cl it reacts vigorously and forms alkyl chloride even reaction can be so vigorous that all hydrogen of alkane can be replaced by chlorine and formation of carbon tetra chloride takes place in methane. In halogens Cl is highly reactive than Br and I.
