propionyl chloride synthesis

Propionyl chloride is synthesized by reacting propionic acid with phosphorus trichloride at 40-50°C for 1h, cooling, standing, separating and distilling to obtain the product.
Propionyl chloride is produced industrially by treatment of propionic acid with phosgene or thionyl chloride. The reaction occurs at ca. 50°C in the liquid phase in the presence of dialkylformamides. The product is then separated by distillation.
CH3CH2CO2H + COCl2 → CH3CH2COCl + HCl + CO2
Propionyl chloride can also be obtained by the reaction of propionic acid with PCl5.
