Assertion : Phosphorus chlorides (tri and penta) are preferred over thionyl chloride for the preparation of alkyl chlorides from alcohols.
Reason : Phosphorus chlorides give pure alkyl halides.
Thionyl chloride is preferred over phosphorous chlorides because along with the alkyl halides formed, the by-products are SO2 and HCl, which are gaseous and hence can escape the reaction leaving pure halides.
