  • Publication number: 20210246090
    Abstract: The present invention aims to provide an efficient method for obtaining a desired isomer of HFO-1132 from a composition comprising trans-1,2-difluoroethylene (HFO-1132(E)) and cis-1,2-difluoroethylene (HFO-1132(Z)). The present invention provides, as a means for solving the problem, a method for producing HFO-1132(E) and/or HFO-1132(Z), comprising steps (1) to (3): (1) supplying a composition comprising HFO-1132(E) and/or HFO-1132(Z) to a reactor filled with a catalyst to perform an isomerization reaction between the HFO-1132(E) and the HFO-1132(Z); (2) separating the reaction product obtained in step (1) into a first stream comprising the HFO-1132(E) as a main component, and a second stream comprising the HFO-1132(Z) as a main component; and (3) recycling the first stream or the second stream obtained in step (2) to the reactor, to subject the first stream or the second stream to the isomerization reaction.

  • Publication number: 20210230086
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for producing HFC-143 that is not expensive, and that is more efficient than conventional methods. Specifically, the present disclosure provides a method for producing 1,1,2-trifluoroethane (HFC-143) that includes contacting at least one chlorine-containing compound selected from the group consisting of 1,1,2-trichloroethane (HCC-140), 1,2-dichloro-1-fluoroethane (HCFC-141), 1,1-dichloro-2-fluoroethane (HCFC-141a), (E,Z)-1,2-dichloroethylene (HCO-1130 (E,Z)), and (E,Z)-1-chloro-2-fluoroethylene (HCFO-1131 (E,Z)) with hydrogen fluoride to perform one or more fluorination reactions, thereby obtaining a reaction gas containing HFC-143, hydrogen chloride, and hydrogen fluoride.
