Conditions affecting the formation of chlorinated carbon during carbochlorination.

Metall Trans B 1988 Jun; 19(3):477-482
This Bureau of Mines paper describes an extensive study of the relationship between various metal oxide carbochlorination reactions and carbon compound byproducts. Experiments in which oxides of titanium, zirconium, and aluminum with graphite, charcoal, metallurgical coke, and petroleum coke were chlorinated at 600 deg to 1,000 deg c produced 136 identified and quantified carbon byproduct compounds. The 20 most abundant of these compounds were correlated with reactants and reaction conditions. Experimental results support a proposed carbochlorination reaction with an initial chlorine-carbon step, followed by a reaction between the resulting chlorine-carbon products and the metal oxide.
