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 was first produced by the Society of Dutch Chemists in 1794 using olefiant and chlorine gas and was also know as "Dutch Oil" in old chemistry.
Chemical Formula. C2H4Cl2
Commercial Grades. 97 to 99% purity.
Uses. Ethylene Dichloride is mainly employed in the production of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), used in turn in the production of PVC homopolymer and copolymers. To a lesser extent, EDC is used in the production of ethylene amines and chlorinated solvents. Other applications are as solvent, scavenging component and storage fumigant.
- Ethylene + chlorine (chlorination)
- Ethylene + hydrogen chloride, anhydrous + oxygen (gas phase oxychlorination)
- Acetylene + hydrogen chloride, anhydrous (addition)
