Chloroprene
Chloroprene
Chloroprene is one of the most important chlorobutene produced on industrial scale, mainly for its use as monomer for the production of polychloroprene (synthetic rubber), which is a versatile polymer employed in a number of applications. Chloroprene is a colorless, highly reactive liquid which undegoes substantial dimerization at room temperature. Its production comprises three steps: (1) Vapor phase chlorination of butadiene to a mixture of 3,4-dichloro-1-butene and 1,4-dichloro-2-butene; (2) Catalytic isomerization of 1,4-dichloro-2-butene to 3,4-dichloro-1-butene; and (3) Dehydrochlorination of 3,4-dichloro-1-butene with alkali to chloroprene.

Chloroprene Production from Butadiene

This report analyses the economics of Chloroprene production from butadiene and chlorine in the United States, via a typical vapor phase butadiene chlorination process. Initially, butadiene is first chlorinated producing two isomers, 1,4-dichloro-2-butene and 3,4-dichloro-1-butene. Then, 1,4-isomers are isomerized to 3,4 isomer. This chemical is finally dehydrochlorinated in the presence of caustic soda producing chloroprene.

The cost analyses presented in the report Chloroprene E11A target a 40 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Chloroprene Production from Acetylene

This report presents the economics of Chloroprene production from acetylene and hydrogen chloride in the United States. In the process examined, acetylene is dimerized to monovinyl acetylene (MVA), which is then reacted with hydrogen chloride to generate a chloroallene intermediate. Finally the chloroallene is rearranged to Chloroprene.
