Kinetic parameters of the ammonolysis reaction of dichloroethane in nonaqueous media are studied and the optimum reaction conditions are reported. A suitable reactor for running the reaction under high pressure in the range of 50 to 500 °C is designed. Kinetic behaviours of the system is studied and other reaction parameters such as rate constant, kinetic order, and activation energy are determined. Gas-liquid chromatography with internal standard method was used for analyses of the samples under the optimized conditions..
