Chemical Description

  • Ethylenediamine (EDA) is a clear and colorless product at normal temperature and pressure which has a characteristic smell of an amine.
  • It is strongly alkaline and is miscible with water and alcohol. It is air sensitive and hygroscopic and absorbs carbon dioxide from the air.
  • It is incompatible with aldehydes, phosphorus halides, organic halides, oxidizing agents, strong acids, copper, its alloys, and its salts.
  • Ethylenediamine is used to facilitate the dissolution of theophylline. This combination is known as aminophylline and used to treat and prevent wheezing and trouble breathing caused by ongoing lung disease.
  • It is evidenced that there is no molecular association between theophylline and ethylenediamine in biological media.
  • Ethylenediamine is in the manufacture of organic flocculants, urea resins, and fatty bisamides.
  • It is used in the production of formulations for use in the printed circuit board and metal finishing industries.
  • It is used as intermediate in the production of crop protection agents, hardeners for epoxy resins, leather industry, paint industry, fungicides in crop protection area, and textile industry.
  • Ethylenediamine is also used as a solvent and for analytical chemistry. It is used to produce photographic fixer additives.
  • Ethylenediamine, a polyamine, is a strongly alkaline, colorless, clear, thick liquid. Ammonia odor. A solid below 8.5℃. The Odor Threshold is 1.0 ppm.
  • Clear, colorless, volatile, slight viscous, hygroscopic liquid with a sweet, ammonia-like odor. The average least detectable odor threshold concentrations in water at 60 °C and in air at 40 °C were 12 and 52 mg/L, respectively.
  • Intermediate in the manufacture of EDTA; catalytic agent in epoxy resins; dyes, solvent stabilizer; neutralizer in rubber products.
  • Human subjects found 100 p.p.m. EDA for a few seconds to be inoffensive but higher concentrations of 200 and 400 p.p.m. produced noticeable irritation of the nasal mucosa (HSDB 1988). Acute EDA ingestion will cause burns of the mouth, esophagus and possibly stomach.
  • Eye contact would be expected to produce a serious burn due to the corrosiveness of the compound. Acute exposure to the skin is likely to produce a skin burn, while chronic exposure will cause a serious burn.
