At elevated temperature ethane undergoes a radical substitution with chlorine to give ethyl chloride and hydrogen chloride. The hydrogen chloride generated adds to ethylene to give a second mole of ethyl chloride.At 400°C the equilibrium position of the addition of chlorine ethylene (to give 1,2-dichloroethane) lies to the left.
