A process for the manufacture of 1,1,3,3-tetrachloropropene, the process comprising dehydrochlorinating 1,1,1,3,3-pentachloropropane.


Patent
Occidental Petroleum Corporation | Date: 2014-11-26

Methods for the manufacture of 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloropropane from 1,1,1,3-tetrachloropropane and chlorine are disclosed. Improved methods are provided for the manufacture of 1,1,2,3-tetrachloropropene from 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloropropane. Methods are also disclosed for the manufacture of 1,1,2,3-tetrachloropropene from 1,1,1,3-tetrachloropropane and chlorine and for the manufacture of 1,1,2,3-tetrachloropropene from carbon tetrachloride, ethylene, and chlorine.


Patent
Occidental Petroleum Corporation | Date: 2016-12-14

The present invention relates to a process for simultaneously producing purified streams of 1,1,2,3-tetrachloropropene and 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloropropane, the process comprising:a. providing a crude product stream containing 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloropropane, where the crude product stream includes ferric chloride; andb. subjecting the crude product stream to reactive distillation at a pressure sufficient to convert a portion of the 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloropropane within the crude to 1,1,2,3-tetrachloropropene while simultaneously forming a volatiles fraction including the 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloropropane and 1,1,2,3-tetrachloropropene, where the volatiles fraction is substantially free of ferric chloride.

Processes for isolating 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloropropane from a crude product stream containing the 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloropropane and ferric chloride. The processes may include deep distillation of the crude, treatment of the crude with a reagent that deactivates the ferric chloride followed by distillation on the deactivated crude stream, aqueous washing of the crude product stream to remove ferric chloride followed by distillation on the deactivated crude stream. Other embodiments simultaneously prepare 1,1,2,3-tetrachloroprene and 1,1,1,2,3-pentachloroprane.

Patent
Occidental Petroleum Corporation | Date: 2014-03-17

In an oxychlorination process of the type where ethylene is converted to 1,2-dichloroethane in the presence of a supported copper catalyst, the improvement comprising: the use of a supported catalyst prepared by (i) impregnating, within a first step, an alumina support with a first aqueous solution including copper, an alkaline earth metal, and an alkali metal to thereby form a first catalyst component; and (ii) impregnating, within a subsequent step, the first catalyst component with a second aqueous solution including copper and alkaline earth metal, where the second aqueous solution is substantially devoid of alkali metal, to thereby form the supported catalyst.
