Ethylene diamine (chemical formula C2H8N2) is an organic compound that exists as a clear, viscous liquid at room temperature.
It is formed by the reaction of ammonia with ethylene chloride at about 100°C and has an ammonia-like odor. It is easily soluble in water and alcohol.
It is a strong base and corrodes living tissue to which it adheres. When heated, it produces toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides and ammonia, so it should be handled with care.
It is primarily used to make other chemicals.
Ethylene diamine is used as synthetic materials to make new chemicals because of its reactivity with many compounds.
Examples in industry include use in synthetic waxes, herbicides, surfactants, emulsifiers, wetting agents, dispersants, corrosion inhibitors, detergents, and textile surface treatments.
Examples in the medical field include a wide range of uses in drug synthesis as chemical stabilizers, such as antihistamines, and in allergic epithelial patch testing to aid in the diagnosis of allergic dermatitis.
