It finds use as a chlorinating reagent.
It is prepared by the chlorination of PCl3.
Phosphorus pentachloride is known to have the salt-like structure in the crystalline state and to be partly dissociated in solution, especially in polar solvents such as nitrobenzene. Used as a chlorinating agent and catalyst ш making organic chemicals, intermediates, dyestuffs, etc.
Used as a catalyst in the manufacture of acetyl cellulose the plastic film on which motion pictures are printed.
Used as a chlorinating agent in organic chemistry.
Used to produce acid chlorides and as a catalyst for cyclisation and condensation reactions.
