Short Note

What is the advantage of alkyl halide using the thionyl chloride (SOCl2 ) method?

Solution

Advantage: Since gas is directly evolved using this approach, additional gas separation is not necessary. As a result, this approach is recommended for making alkyl chloride.

\[\ce{\underset{(Methanol)}{CH3OH} + \underset{(Thionyl chloride)}{SOCl2} ->[\Delta] \underset{(Methyl chloride)}{CH3Cl} + SO2↑ + HCl↑}\]

Concept: Methods of Preparation of Alkyl Halides
