Reaction of tetrachloroethylene with methanol under pressure

  • 18 Accesses


A method was developed for the preparation of trichloroallyl alcohol from methanol and tetrachloroethylene in a titanium apparatus under a pressure of 100–120 atm in the presence of CC14 (335°), CH3COC2H5 (365°) or (CH3)3COOC (CH3)3 (185°), in a yield of 35–55% when based on starting TCE and 85–90% when based on reacted TCE, with a reactor output of up to 1000 g/h liter.
