Title
Unusual 1,2-dichloroethane dehydrochlorination over ruthenium-oxychloride catalyst
Abstract

•Novel reaction of vinyl chloride with H2O with formation of ethylene was revealed.•Ethylene formed over Ru-catalyst with a likely participation of electrophylic oxygen•H2O addition accelerated the reaction and increased the selectivity to ethylene.

This communication presents the data on the unusual conversion of 1,2-dichloroethane over ruthenium-oxychloride catalyst. It was found that dichloroethane was dehydrochlorinated at moderate temperatures with release of ethylene and, unexpectedly, the products of destructive oxidation, namely CO and CO2.
