Utilization of chloroorganic waste by their catalytic copolymerization


A new method, proposed by authors, of utilization of chloroorganic waste accompanying the production of 1,2-dichlorethane consists in alkaline dehydrochlorination of this waste (equations 1-5) and simultaneous copolymerization with the unsaturated hydrocarbons of C5-C9 fraction. At the first stage of the process at ambient temperatures (≤ 50 °C) ionic polymerization and copolymerization of the non-saturated components, take place. Then, at higher temperatures (<50 oC) the free radical homopolymerization and copolymerization of vinyl chloride and vinylidene chloride most probably proceed. As a final product, oligomeric and polymeric resin-like products are formed, which can be recommended for the use as hydroisolating material.
