Question

The reduction of benzoyl chloride with $$Pd$$ and $$\displaystyle BaSO_{4}/CaSO_{3}$$ produces :


A
benzyl chloride
loader
B
benzoic acid
loader
C
benzaldehyde
loader
D
All of the above
loader

Solution

The correct option is B benzaldehyde
The reduction of benzoyl chloride with $$Pd$$ and $$BaSO_4/CaSO_3$$ produces benzaldehyde.
$$BaSO_4$$ is poisoned with sulphur so that further reduction of  benzaldehyde is prevented. This reaction is known as Rosenmund reaction.
$$C_6H_5COCl + H_2 \xrightarrow {Pd /BaSO_4/CaSO_3}C_6H_5CHO + HCl$$
