Question

# Give the correct order of initials T or F for following statements. Use T if statement is true and F if it is false.(a) $$SOCl_2, PCl_3$$ and $$HCl$$ all converts an alcohol into alkyl halide(b) Mechanism of all the three reagent are identical(c) A mechanism for $$SOCl_2$$ and $$PCl_3$$ are identical but different mechanism is followed in case of HCl(d) They all are used commercially to convert acetic acid into acetyl chloride.

A
TTFT
B
TFFF
C
TFTF
D
TFFT

Solution

## The correct option is C TFTF$$R-OH \xrightarrow [ZnCl_2 anhy.]{HCl} R-Cl+H_2O$$$$R-OH \xrightarrow []{SOCl_2} R-Cl+SO_2 \uparrow HCl \uparrow$$$$R-OH \xrightarrow []{PCl_3} R-Cl+H_3PO_3$$All of the reagents have different mechanism $$SOCl_2$$ and $$PCl_3$$ are used to convert acetic acid into acetyl chloride.$$R-COOH \xrightarrow []{SOCl_2} RCOCl+HCl+SO_2$$$$RCOOH \xrightarrow []{PCl_3} RCOCl+ H_3PO_3$$The mechanism of $$HCl$$ to produce alkyl halide from alcohol involves $$SN_1$$ mechanism but $$SOCl_2$$ and $$PCl_3$$ involves $$SN_2$$ mechanism leading to inversion in product. So, the answer is Option C.Chemistry
