Acetylene can be manufactured by the non-catalytic pyrolysis of a range of hydrocarbons. Even coal can be used.Very high temperatures (electric arc furnace) and low residence times are employed. Or, oxygen can be added to give a flame in which the acetylene is generated.The acetylene (up to 14 % by vol) has to be purified, usually by solvent extraction in something like DMF.
