Abstract

1. A method is given for the preparation of 2-butene chlorohydrin by the addition of acetic acid to a mixture of calcium hypochlorite and butene at -10°C.

2. A convenient method is given for the preparation of large amounts of butene oxide by dropping butene chlorohydrin on hot concentrated potassium hydroxide solution.

3. The fractional distillation of the isomeric chlorohydrins of the 2-butenes is described.

4. The fractional distillation of the isomeric 2-butene oxides is described.

5. The physical properties of the fractions of 2-butene chlorohydrin and of the fractions of 2-butene oxide are given.

6. The approximate values are given for the hydrolysis rate of the two fractions of 2-butene chlorohydrin.
