About:

Ethylene appears as a colourless gas with a sweet odour and taste. It is lighter than air. It is the simplest alkene and flammable in nature. It is extensively used in the industrial sector to produce polyethylene, a widely used plastic having polymer chains of ethylene units. It can also be hydrated to produce ethanol. 

Chemical Formula of Ethylene

  • C2H4 

Synonyms:

  • 74-85-1
  • Ethene
  • Green ethylene

Molecular Weight

  • 28.05 g/mol

Industrial Uses

  • Polymerisation
  • Oxidation
  • Intermediates
  • Halogenation and hydrohalogenation
  • Manufacturing
  • Plasticisers
  • Hydration and oligomerisation
  • Processing aid, specific to petroleum production

Production Process

  • Production of Ethylene via Steam Cracking Process.

In this process, ethane is used as a feedstock and is heated at a temperature ranging from 750 to 950 °C with steam.  This results in the conversion of large and complex hydrocarbons into smaller ones and further causes unsaturation, which finally produces Ethylene. 

Procurement Resource also provides the production cost analysis of Ethylene.
