The reaction would not be useful for the large scale manufacture of 2-bromohexane.
The reaction produces a mixture of 1-, 2-, and 3-bromohexane:
The selectivity of
The relative yields of each product are
∴ The theoretical yield of 2-bromobutane is
Unless the product is quite valuable, it would be uneconomical for a company to manufacture a product with a maximum yield of 50%.
