Ethane is an organic compound, in the paraffinic hydrocarbon class. It is a colorless, odorless gas, very sparingly soluble in water but soluble in ether, alcohol and highly soluble in benzene. Ethane is the second-largest component of natural gas, the first one being methane. First synthesized in 1834, ethane is today mostly used for ethylene production. Ethane consumption in the United States has increased during the past several years, being the most consumed hydrocarbon gas in the US since 2013.
