About Ethylene Dichloride. Ethylene Dichloride (a.k.a. EDC, 1,2-Dichloroethane, DCE) is the most produced chlorinated hydrocarbon by a wide margin. It is a colorless liquid with an odor that resembles chloroform. It is mainly used to produce vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), starting material to produce polyvinyl chloride (PVC), one of the main plastic polymers.
Chemical Formula. C2H4Cl2
Commercial Grades. Most commercial ethylene dichloride is 97-99% pure and contains about 0.1% wt% of alkylamines to inhibit decomposition.
Uses. Production of vinyl chloride, solvent, scavenging component, storage fumigant.
- Ethylene + chlorine (chlorination)
- Ethylene + hydrogen chloride, anhydrous + oxygen (gas phase oxychlorination)
- Acetylene + hydrogen chloride, anhydrous (addition)

Derivatives. 1,1-Dichloroethane; 1,2-ethanedithiol; ethylenediamine; polyethylenepolyamine; polysulfide rubber; trichloroethylene; vinyl chloride.
Methodology. The chemicals pricing data Intratec provides its customers with is obtained from the collection/refining of foreign trade data officially reported by the respective countries. Usually, such information is reported by governmental agencies and/or institutions related to foreign trade, or by statistical surveys conducted by countries/organizations.
