Epoxyethane Production Cost Analysis 2020
Epoxyethane, also known as ethylene oxide, is a well-known organic compound. It is colourless and flammable leaving a faintly sweet odour. Epoxyethane is isomeric with acetaldehyde and vinyl alcohol. It is commercially manufactured by the oxidation of ethylene with a silver catalyst. Since it is formed in a strained ring, epoxyethane can easily participate in a numbers of addition reactions that result in ring-opening.
Epoxyethane is one of the most crucial raw materials used in large-scale chemical manufacturing. Most of the epoxyethane is most commonly utilised for the synthesis of ethylene glycols. Other crucial products involve ethylene glycol ethers, ethanolamines, and ethoxylates. Among glycols, ethylene glycol is used as an antifreeze in the manufacturing of polyester and polyethene terephthalate.
Epoxyethane is also used as a sterilising agent, disinfecting agent, and fumigant as a mixture with carbon dioxide or nitrogen. It is also applied for gas-phase sterilisation of medical equipment and instruments, and packaging materials, as well as clothing, surgical, and scientific equipment.
