Information @ a Glance


  • Thionyl chloride or thionyl dichloride is an inorganic compound with the formula SOCl2.
  • Thionyl chloride 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.


  • N-Acylhydrazones of o-hydroxyaryl ketones react with thionyl chloride to give N-arylhydrazonoyl chlorides in good yields.
  • 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.


  • 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.
