The combination of tetraalkylammonium halides (Cl<SUP>−</SUP>, Br<SUP>−</SUP>) and m-chloroperbenzoic acid in CH<SUB>3</SUB>CN effectively halogenated alkanes accompanied by the formation of alkyl m-chlorobenzoate; for which the alkyl halides were formed via a non-photoinduced radical mechanism and the esters were derived from a non-radical process and concomitant with the formation of corresponding trialkylamine.
