Benzoyl chloride (CAS 98-88-4) also known as benzenecarbonyl chloride, is an organochlorine compound with the formula C6H5COCl. It is a colourless, fuming liquid with an irritating odour. Benzyl chloride is transparent colorless, flammable liquid, and exposed to air it smokes. It has a special excitant odor, steam stimulation eye mucous membrane and tear,soluble in ether, chloroform, benzene and carbon disulfide. It is mainly useful for the production of peroxides but is generally useful in other areas such as in the preparation of dyes, perfumes, pharmaceuticals, and resins.
Benzoyl chloride is produced from benzotrichloride using either water or benzoic acid:
C6H5CCl3 + H2O → C6H5COCl + 2 HCl
C6H5CCl3 + C6H5CO2H → 2 C6H5COCl + HCl
