Why does Benzal chloride redirect here? Benzal chloride is not benzoyl chloride, it is α,α-dichlorotoluene or 1,1-dichloromethylbenzene, Ph-CHCl2. Someone please revert this redirection.--188.8.131.52 02:50, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
I flagged Benzal chloride, but I don't know enough about it to write a new article. I hope flagging is the correct action to take in this case. Dunric 04:38, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
Looks like there's a full separate article now! Walkerma (talk) 05:09, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
indicates c7 in properties on table left, but in definition c6? por que? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 07:24, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
C7H5ClO and C6H5COCl are just different ways of writing the formula. The first lists each element count (using the Hill system of ordering), the second gives some indication of chemical structure: C6H5 for phenyl, then CO for carbonyl, then chloride. Both indicate seven carbon atoms. ChemNerd (talk) 20:29, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Fixed today one instance of C7H5COCl which fell between the two stools! Captain Pedant (talk) 13:20, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
What's the systematic name for this molecule?
Is it a phenylcarboxyl chloride? Adwctamia (talk) 16:48, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
