The dehydrochlorination behavior of pure and flexible PVC in ethylene glycol was studied in the presence of Ca(OH) 2 at temperatures between 170 °C and 190 °C. Although the dehydrochlorination proceeded slower in Ca(OH) 2 than in NaOH, similar dehydrochlorination yields were obtained. It was assumed that the slower reaction rate was a result of the low solubility of Ca(OH) 2 and the larger solvation shell of the Ca 2+ ion. The dehydrochlorination rate and yield were improved by employing a ball mill. Additionally, diisononyl phthalate and CaCO 3 were quantitatively separated from flexible PVC during the ball-milling process. The maximum dehydrochlorination yield of pure PVC after 7 h at 190 °C was 74%. After 8 h at the same temperature, a comparable dehydrochlorination yield of 77% was achieved for flexible PVC, which could be increased by ball milling to 86%.
