Abstract : This patent describes production of acetylene by pyrolytic cracking of hydrocarbons following laser volumertric heating by: doping the feed stock with an absorbing gas such as ethylene to absorb laser radiation in a controlled manner; applying laser radiation in the form of a sheet with a thickness from about 5 to about 20 mm perpendicular to the flow direction of the feed stock; maintaining a reaction temperature around 1800 to 200 K by adjusting the energy output of the laser; and maintaining the temperature of the reaction chamber walls below 1000 K.
