Kinetics and Mechanism of Ethylene Conversion in a Glow Discharge at Low Pressures

  • E. N. Borisova

It is known [1–18] that under the effect of electric discharges ethylene can take part in a wide range of reactions; conversion to acetylene, methane, carbon, and hydrogen, hydrogenation to ethane, polymerization to liquid and solid hydrocarbons, etc. The direction taken by ethylene conversion depends on the type of discharge and its power, and on the experimental conditions — particularly the pressure in the discharge zone. It was therefore of interest to study the behavior of ethylene in a glow discharge at low pressures, under the same conditions in which the conversion of acetylene was studied.
