The oxidation products of seven chlorinated ethanes were identified using Fourier Transform Spectroscopy and long path infrared techniques. Photo-oxidation of each chlorinated ethane was initiated by chlorine atoms in one atmosphere of dry air. The chlorinated reaction products included phosgene, formyl chloride, hydrogen chloride, acetyl chloride, and chlorinated acetyl chlorides. Five rules concerning the initiation reaction and the stability of the intermediate products were set forth and were used to explain the photooxidation steps of each chlorinated ethane. Methyl chloroform was the least reactive of the chlorinated ethanes.
