    What is the context of your question? Is this for schoolwork? If not, what do you want to use the CH3CH2Cl for?

    It would have to involve methane I expect, and that would mean H2 being produced.
    Then you need Oxygen to combine with that H2 ideally, maybe Hydrogen peroxide would do it.
    I looked at ways CH3CH2Cl is produced commercially and it's done starting with ethylene, C2H4
