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.
