Phosphorus pentachloride may be used as halogenating reagent to convert any substituted aldehyde into the corresponding vinyl halide.It can also undergo reaction with ammonium chloride to yield linear phosphazenes and cyclophosphazenes.
Industrially, benzyl chloride is the precursor to benzyl esters which are used as plasticizers, flavorants, and perfumes. Phenylacetic acid, a precursor to pharmaceuticals, is produced from benzyl cyanide, which is generated by treatment of benzyl chloride with sodium cyanide. Quaternary ammonium salts, used as surfactants, are readily formed by alkylation of tertiary amines with benzyl chloride.
