General description

Vinyl chloride is a colorless gas, which can serve as a monomer for the industrial production of poly(vinyl chloride) bhomopolymer and copolymer. It can also be used in the production of vinyl stearate, vinylidene chloride, tri- and tetra-chloroethylene. It can be obtained via reaction of hydrochloric acid with acetylene derived from calcium carbide.
