Information @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Thionyl chloride or thionyl dichloride is an inorganic compound with the formula SOCl2.
  • SOCl2 is a reactive chemical reagent used in chlorination reactions.
  • It is a colorless, distillable liquid at room temperature and pressure that decomposes above 140 °C.
  • Thionyl chloride is a colorless to pale yellow liquid used in the production of batteries.
  • N-Acylhydrazones of o-hydroxyaryl ketones react with thionyl chloride to give N-arylhydrazonoyl chlorides in good yields.
  • Some heteroaromatic compounds with methyl substituents in the heterocyclic ring, such as 2-methylbenzothiazole, 2-methylbenzoxazole, and analogues, undergo rapid methyl group chlorination when heated with thionyl chloride.
  • The slow monochlorination, observed in a few cases, is probably a simple free radical reaction. Thionyl chloride slowly decomposes at reflux temperature into sulphur monoxide and chlorine.

  • Lithium thionyl chloride batteries are mainly used in implantable devices which consume higher power in milliwatt range such as drug pumps and neurostimulators.

  • When the equilibrium is shifted by the expansion lowering the pressure in the manifold, more thionyl chloride desorbs from the carbon increasing the pressure back to the original value.

  • If the thionyl chloride was irreversibly adsorbed or reacted, the pressure would be expected to decrease and remain at that lower pressure upon expansion. This discovery lead to a search for a new getter for Li/SOClz batteries.

  • Alcohols investigated include polyvinyl alcohol, cellulose and sugars. Alcohols are quite reactive with thionyl chloride.

  • Thionyl chloride is used inside lithium-thionyl chloride batteries as the positive active material with lithium as the negative active material.
  • It is also used as a reagent for the production of other chemical compounds or materials.
  • It is also used during synthesis of drugs, vitamins, and herbicides. It is commercially available and used in industrial chemical reactions.
