General description

Ethylenediamine is a linear aliphatic diamine, widely used as a building block in organic synthesis. It readily forms heterocyclic imidazolidine derivatives, because of its bifunctional nature, having two amines. Ethylenediamine is also utilized as a raw material for the synthesis of chelating agents, polymers, agrochemicals and pharmaceutical intermediates.

Application

Ethylenediamine can be employed as:
  • A reactant in the synthesis of water-swellable polyurethane urea gels by copolymerization.
  • A solvent along with dodecanethiol in the preparation of CdS nanowires by solvothermal method.
  • A chelating agent in the synthesis of β-Co(OH)2 nanocrystals.
