Ethylenediamine (abbreviated as en when a ligand) is the organic compound with the formula C2H4(NH2)2. This colorless liquid with an ammonia-like odor is a strongly basic amine. It is a widely used building block in chemical synthesis, with approximately 500,000 tonnes.
Ethylenediamine is a Standardized Chemical Allergen. The physiologic effect of ethylenediamine is by means of Increased Histamine Release, and Cell-mediated Immunity. The chemical classification of ethylenediamine is Allergens.
Ethylenediamine (EDA) is a robust base and chelating agent, which is characterized by its clear liquid-like colorlessness and ammonia-like odor. Though there are several precautions that must be taken during the handling of ethylenediamine, as it can be severely hazardous to health and can even cause blindness as a result of high exposer, it is highly useful too for a number of industries such as paints and coatings, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, mining and textile, and fuel and energy.
