IMO E.

Chemical reactions between X and Y. - we eliminate A and B. In C and D 'which' refers to vapor, while it should refer to 'chemical reactions'.

A B are out..
between X with y -- INCORRECT
between X and Y correct

C,D distorts the meaning

E remains.

I'll add up to suresh's recommendation that it is 'Between X and Y' instead of Between X with Y.
Its a 2/3 split, which automatically eliminates A and B. C uses wrong tense 'which has produced'. D is too wordy.
E is the best choice.
