About Ethylene Oxide:
Ethylene Oxide, an organic compound, is a cyclic ether and the simplest epoxide. It is a colourless gas with ether-like odour. It is a versatile compound that is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of other chemicals of industrial importance. One of the most important derivatives of Ethylene Oxide is ethylene glycol, which is further utilised in the production of PET resin. A small but significant use of Ethylene Oxide is as a sterilizing agent particularly in the healthcare industry.
