Ethylene oxide is a toxic carcinogen that has previously been used to make fungicides. Ethylene oxide flammable and explosive, not easy to long-distance transport, so there is a strong regional. Is widely used in washing, pharmaceutical, printing and dyeing and other industries. In the chemical industry can be used as a detergent starter.
Ethylene oxide has a bactericidal effect, the metal does not corrode, no residual odor, can kill bacteria (and its endospores), mold and fungi, it can be used to disinfect some can not withstand high temperature disinfection of materials and gas disinfectant . American chemist Lloyd Hall obtained a patent for preserving spices by ethylene oxide disinfection in 1938, which is still used today. Ethylene oxide is also widely used to sterilize medical supplies such as bandages, sutures and surgical instruments.
Mainly used in the manufacture of various other solvents (such as cellosolve, etc.), thinner, non-ionic surfactants, synthetic detergents, antifreeze agents, disinfectants, toughening agents and plasticizers. Hydroxyethylation with cellulose yields a water-soluble resin with an ethylene oxide content of about 75%. Can also be used as fumigant, paint thickener, emulsifier, adhesive and paper sizing agent. [8]
A mixture of ethylene oxide-carbon dioxide (90:10 in both) or ethylene oxide-dichlorodifluoromethane is commonly used for disinfection of hospitals and precision instruments. Ethylene oxide fumigants commonly used in food, food preservation. For example, dry egg powder is often decomposed by bacterial action and fumigated with ethylene oxide to prevent spoilage. The chemical composition of the egg powder, including amino acids, is not affected.
Ethylene oxide easily with acid, it can be added as an antacid in certain substances, thereby reducing the acidity of these substances or the use of its long-term does not produce acidic. For example, in the production of chlorinated butyl rubber, a solution of isobutylene and isoprene copolymer can be completely dealkalized and washed with water if ethylene oxide is added before chlorination.
Because ethylene oxide is flammable and has a wide range of explosive concentrations in the air, it is sometimes used as a fuel component of fuel gas fired explosive bombs.
Ethylene oxide can generate huge amounts of energy when it is automatically decomposed. It can be used as a power for rockets and jet propellers. Generally, a mixture of nitromethane and ethylene oxide (60: 40-95: 5) is used. This hybrid fuel combustion performance, low freezing point, the nature of relatively stable, not easy to detonate. In general, ethylene oxide has the lowest direct consumption for these uses. Ethylene oxide is the second most important product next to polyethylene for industrial derivatives of ethylene. Its importance is mainly based on its products for the production of raw materials. The downstream products derived from ethylene oxide are far more diverse than various ethylene derivatives. Ethylene oxide is 27 times more toxic than ethylene glycol, similar in toxicity to ammonia. Formaldehyde, ethylene glycol and oxalic acid are formed in the body, which play a role of anesthesia on the central nervous system, stimulating the mucous membrane and poisoning the cell puree.
Most of the ethylene oxide is used to make other chemicals, mainly ethylene glycol. The main end use of ethylene glycol is the production of polyester polymers, which are also used as automotive coolants and antifreeze agents. Second for the production of ethoxylates, ethanolamine, glycol ethers, ethyleneamines, diethyleneglycol, triethyleneglycol, polyglycol, hydroxyethylcellulose, choline chloride, glyoxal, Ester and other downstream products.
Ethylene oxide is mainly used in the manufacture of ethylene glycol (polyester fiber raw materials), synthetic detergents, non-ionic surfactants, cryoprotectants, emulsifiers and ethylene glycol products, but also for the production of plasticizers, Lubricants, rubber and plastics. Widely used in washing and dyeing, electronics, medicine, pesticides, textiles, paper, automobiles, oil extraction and refining and many other fields.
