The adsorption of CCl4 on V2O5 as well as the steady state kinetics of the chlorination reaction in this system have been studied by volumetric and thermogravimetric methods. Though the adsorption observable below 420 K is of physical character, it can be suggested that an unmeasurable, dissociative type adsorption also occurs. The apparent activation energy of the chlorination process is 77±5 kJ mol-1, while the reaction order is 0.5 in CCl4.
