Hi Anubhav,

 

Throritically yes it can be prepared.

But as the reaction involves a SN2 nucleophilic substitution of Hallide by an electron rich alkyl anion (in this case it would be propane anion) there would be steric hindrance for the substitution to take place.

Hence very little of Hexane only would be formed.

 

Hope it helps.

 

Regards,

Ashwin (IIT Madras).
