Recent reports of the possible carcinogenic properties of vinylidene chloride, because of structural similarity to vinyl chloride, prompted this investigation. This report views the chemical and physical properties of vinylidene chloride (VDC) and its important derivitives and polymers. A detailed discussion of the manufacturing process, including sites, new technologies and environmental management is presented. The consumption of VDC in the manufacture of methyl chloroform and alternative manufacturing processes for methyl chloroform which do not involve VDC are discussed. The most important end use of VDC, polymerization, is described in detail. A cost performance analysis of copolymers containing VDC, VDC laminated films, multilayer 'PVDC sandwich' type films and other films not containing VDC such as polyethylene and polyprylene is reported. Finally a summary of the chemical losses due to air emissions, liquid effluents and solid wastes is discussed.
