Question

# A compound X of the formula $$C_{2}H_{6}O$$, on reaction with Na metal gave Y, X also reacts with $$PCl_{5}$$ to give Z. The product obtained in the reaction between Y and Z is :

A
CH3CHO
B
CH3COCH3
C
CH3COOC2H5
D
C2H5OC2H5

Solution

## The correct option is D $$C_{2}H_{5}OC_{2}H_{5}$$The compound X, Y and Z are ethanol $$\displaystyle (C_2H_5OH)$$, sodium ethoxide $$\displaystyle C_2H_5ONa$$ and ethyl chloride $$\displaystyle C_2H_5Cl$$ respectively.Ethanol reacts with Na metal to form sodium ethoxide. $$\displaystyle C_2H_5OH \xrightarrow {Na}C_2H_5ONa + 0.5 H_2$$Ethanol also reacts with $$PCl_5$$ to give ethyl chloride. $$\displaystyle C_2H_5OH \xrightarrow {PCl_5}C_2H_5Cl$$ The product obtained in the reaction between sodium ethoxide and ethyl chloride is diethyl ether.$$\displaystyle C_2H_5ONa+C_2H_5Cl \xrightarrow {-NaCl} C_{2}H_{5}OC_{2}H_{5}$$Hence, the correct option is 'D'ChemistryNCERTStandard XII
