D
benzenediazonium chloride

Solution

The correct option is D benzenediazonium chloride
The starting material used in Sandmeyer's reaction is benzenediazonium chloride. Sandmeyer's reaction involves conversion of benzene diazonium chloride to chlorobenzene or bromobenzene. Diazonium group is replaced by $$-Cl$$ or $$-Br$$ group using cuprous salts. The reagent used in the conversion of benzene diazonium chloride to chlorobenzene is  $$Cu_2Cl_2$$. The reagent used in the conversion of benzene diazonium
chloride to bromobenzene is $$Cu_2Br_2$$.
$$Ph-N_2Cl \xrightarrow {Cu_2Cl_2} Ph-Cl+N_2 \uparrow$$
