Question

Write the industrial name and two uses of ethyne.

In this question, we have to tell the industrial name of ethyne and its uses. An industrial name is a name that is used commonly. It is the common name of the compound. The common name of ethyne is acetylene. The molecular formula of this compound is ${C_2}{H_2}$. It is the simplest alkyne. It is unstable in the pure form so it is used as a solution. Pure acetylene is odorless but commercial used has some odor to some impurities.
$Ca{C_2} + 2{H_2}O\xrightarrow{{}}Ca{\left( {OH} \right)_2} + {C_2}{H_2}$
Polymerization of acetylene with Ziegler-Natta catalysts produces polyacetylene films. Ziegler-Natta catalyst is used in the synthesis of $1 -$ alkenes. Polyacetylene refers to an organic polymer with ${\left( {{C_2}{H_2}} \right)_n}$ as repeating units.
