Liquid-phase hydrodechlorination of hexachlorobenzene was kinetically studied in the presence of both nickel (Ni/C) and palladium-promoted nickel (2%PdNi/C) catalysts under different reaction conditions. Molecular hydrogen (at 1 and 20 atm) and sodium borohydride (NaBH4) were used as reducing agents. In the presence of the nickel catalyst, the hydrodechlorination of C6Cl6 occurs via a consecutive mechanism (removal of one chlorine atom from the substrate at each stage), whereas with the 2%PdNi/C catalyst, the transformation of C6Cl6 occurs via both consecutive and multiplet mechanism (with the elimination of several chlorine atoms without desorption of the chloroaromatic substrate from the catalyst surface). The promotion of the nickel catalysts with palladium substantially changes the selectivity of formation of intermediate products of C6C16 dechlorination. The mechanism of hydrodechlorination of hexachlorobenzene was suggested that explained the presence of only certain products of partial dechlorination of hexachlorobenzene in the reaction medium.
