1,2-Dichloroethane – Wikipedia

The chemical compound 1,2-dichloroethane commonly known as ethylene dichloride EDCis a chlorinated hydrocarbon. It is a colourless liquid with a chloroform -like odour. The most common use of 1,2-dichloroethane is in the production of vinyl chloridewhich is used to make polyvinyl chloride PVC pipes, furniture and automobile upholstery, wall coverings, housewares, and automobile parts.

It forms azeotropes with many other solventsincluding water b.

Society of Dutch Chemistswere the first to produce 1,2-dichloroethane from olefiant gas oil-making gas, ethylene and chlorine gas. Part of that acknowledgement is that 1,2-dichloroethane was called “Dutch oil” in old chemistry. Nearly 20 million tons of 1,2-dichloroethane are produced msdw the United StatesWestern Europeand Japan.


VCM is the precursor to polyvinyl chloride. The hydrogen chloride can be re-used in the production of more 1,2-dichloroethane via the oxychlorination route described above.

As a good polar aprotic solvent1,2-dichloroethane could be used as degreaser and paint remover but is now banned from use due to its toxicity and possible carcinogenity.

As a useful ‘building block’ reagent, it is used as an intermediate in the production of various organic compounds such as ethylenediamine.

In the laboratory it is occasionally used as a source of chlorinewith elimination of ethene and chloride. Via several steps, 1,2-dichloroethane is a precursor to 1,1,1-trichloroethanewhich is used in dry cleaning.

msdds Historically, 1,2-dichloroethane was used as an anti-knock additive in leaded fuels to scavenge lead from cylinders and valves preventing buildup. Its high solubility and year half-life in anoxic aquifers make it a perennial pollutant and health risk that is very expensive to treat conventionally, requiring a method of bioremediation.

Dioxolane and toluene are possible substitutes as solvents.

Dichloroethane is unstable in the presence of aluminium metal and, when moist, with zinc and iron. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. LC 50 median concentration.
