Ethylene Dichloride
C2H4Cl2
97 to 99% purity.
Ethylene Dichloride is mainly employed in the production of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), used in turn in the production of PVC homopolymer and copolymers. To a lesser extent, EDC is used in the production of ethylene amines and chlorinated solvents. Other applications are as solvent, scavenging component and storage fumigant.
PVC; 1-dichloroethane; 2-ethanedithiol; ethylenediamine; polyethylenepolyamine; polysulfide rubber; trichloroethylene; and vinyl chloride.
