Does anyone know how much oxalyl chloride is needed to make TCPO, if you start with approx. 8g of 2,4,6 - TCP? I'm asking this because I have conflicting answers: Laffle on youtube list 1.7ml of oxalyl chloride whereas thomsci suggests 10ml. both start with 8g of TCP. Am I missing something? thanks.

I calculate 1.74 mL.

eBay.uk does not sell the ingredients so I've no idea on pricing
but I guess that oxalyl chloride is cheaper/easier to buy than TCP,
in which case, the excess may be to force the reaction equilibrium for better TCPO yield ?

thanks Ozone, but can I ask how you came up with that answer. I can't seem to calculate it using stoichiometry.

Stoichiometry will give you the mass of oxalyl chloride. Use the density to calculate mL: 1.48 g/cc.
