Ethyl chloride - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (500 words)
Ethyl chloride is a chemical compound once widely used in producing tetraethyl lead, a gasoline additive.
Ethyl chloride is produced by reacting ethylene and hydrogen chloride over an aluminium chloride catalyst at temperatures ranging from 130-250°C. Under these conditions, ethyl chloride is produced according to the chemical equation.
At various times in the past, ethyl chloride has also been produced from ethanol and hydrochloric acid, or from ethane and chlorine, but these routes are no longer economical.
