Preparation of acryloyl chloride

Preparation of acryloyl chloride

A mixture of 216.18 g (or 3 moles) of acrylic acid and 843.42 g (or 6 moles) of benzoyl chloride containing hydroquinone (0.5 g) are distilled at a moderate speed through a 25-cm column, and the portions boiling up to 85° C (mostly at 60-70° C) are collected in a receiver containing 0.5 grams of hydroquinone while cooled in ice. The obtained distillate (215-225 g) is redistilled through the same column, collecting the fraction boiling at 72-74° C/740 mm Hg. The yield of acryloyl chloride is 185-195 g. Yields obtained by using inorganic acid chlorides are not so good.
