About Ethylene Oxide. Ethylene Oxide (a.k.a. Oxirane , Epoxyethane) is the simplest cyclic ether. It is one of the most versatile chemical intermediates, converted in a range of products. It is considered an extremely hazardous compound, since it can explode and is both highly flammable and reactive. Also, ethylene oxide is a confirmed carcinogen.
Chemical Formula. C2H4O
Commercial Grades. technical grade and pure grade (99.7 wt % purity).
Uses. Ethylene Oxide is used industrially in the production of ethylene glycols (polyesters, antifreezes), surfactants, ethanolamines and glycol ethers. To a lesser extent, it is used as disinfectant, sterilizing agent, and fumigant.
- Ethylene (direct oxidation process, silver-based catalyst)
- Ethylene + hypochlorous acid (chlorohydrin process, coproduced with calcium chloride)
