Draw a stepwise mechanism for the following reaction
Answer to question 1
Answer to question 2
The given chemical reaction between a primary alcohol and thionyl chloride (SOCl2)(SOCl2) takes place in three steps. In the first step, the lone pair of electrons of oxygen atom attacks on the sulfur atom of thionyl chloride and brings a negative charge on the oxygen atom. The reformation of S=OS=O the bond takes place in the second step and the chlorine group is removed as Cl−Cl−. In the third step, Cl−Cl− acts as a nucleophile and attacks the electron deficient carbon atom. This leads to the formation of the desired product.
