Preparation of vinyl chloride

Preparation of vinyl chloride

With mercury(II) chloride on silica gel at 25° C and streaming velocities of 1.5 l/hour for acetylene and 2.2 l/hour for hydrogen chloride there are formed 93% of vinyl chloride with less than 3% of 1,1-dichloroethane, and at 195° C 98% and 1 % respectively.

Preparative Organic Chemistry, by Weygand/Hilgetag, 131, (1972).

Vinyl chloride and vinyl bromide can also be obtained in the liquid phase: acetylene is led with stirring at 65-70° C through a mixture of copper(I) chloride (250 g), ammonium chloride (100 g), and 15% hydrochloric acid (300 ml) or at 60° C through a solution of copper(I) bromide in aqueous hydrobromic acid in case of vinyl bromide.
