  • Publication number: 20210317054
    Abstract: The production method according to the present disclosure comprises obtaining a product containing the fluoroethane from a fluoroethylene by a reaction in the presence of catalysts. Each catalyst is formed by supporting a noble metal on a carrier. A reactor for performing the reaction is filled with a catalyst having a noble metal concentration of C1 mass % based on the entire catalyst and a catalyst having a noble metal concentration of C2 mass % based on the entire catalyst to form an upstream portion and a downstream portion, respectively; and C1<C2. The reaction is performed by bringing the fluoroethylene represented by formula (3) and hydrogen gas into contact with the upstream portion and the downstream portion in this order.

  • Publication number: 20210253502
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for producing fluoroolefin represented by formula (1): CX1X2=CX3X4, wherein X1, X2, X3, and X4 are the same or different, and represent a hydrogen atom or a fluorine atom, with high selectivity. Specifically, the present disclosure is a method for producing a fluoroolefin represented by formula (1) described above, the method comprising a dehydrofluorination step of bringing a fluorocarbon represented by formula (2): CX1X2FCX3X4H, wherein X1, X2, X3, and X4 are as defined above, into contact with a metal catalyst to perform dehydrofluorination, the dehydrofluorination step being performed in the gas phase in the presence of water, the concentration of the water being less than 500 ppm relative to the fluorocarbon represented by formula (2).

  • 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.
