Paper Abstract

The production of vinyl chloride from 1,2-dichloroethane by direct XeCl laser photolysis has been studied with respect to by-product formation in comparison with the thermal reaction. Acetylene and Chloroprene, the main products, could be reduced substantially because it was possible to work at low temperatures. Ethylene, a minor compound, increased due to shorter radical chain lengths. The computer model of the reaction system was extended to include the side reaction paths. Control experiments with added products improved the kinetic data of elementary steps.
