Ethylene oxide – Wikipedia
Ethylene oxide is a colorless gas at 25 °C (77 °F) and is a mobile liquid at 0 °C (32 °F) – the viscosity of liquid ethylene oxide at 0 °C is about 5.5 times lower than that of water.
The gas has a characteristic sweet odor of ether, noticeable when its concentration in the air exceeds 500 ppm.
C2H4O is readily soluble in water, ethanol, diethyl ether, and many organic solvents.
Ethylene Oxide Uses
EtO is capable of sterilizing at low temperatures, enabling the sterilization of many plastic, composite, and other temperature-sensitive devices.
Additionally, it penetrates packaging materials and diffuses into the channels and crevices of complicated medical devices, including entire palletized loads of devices,
destroying pathogens and assuring sterility of the product.
Ethylene Oxide is also utilized to sterilize, fumigate, and reduce the microbial load for a variety of other products, including spices
and seasonings, cosmetics, aseptic packaging, laboratory materials, pharmaceuticals, artifacts, archival materials, and library objects.
Manufacturers use EO primarily in producing other chemicals used in consumer and industrial applications.
The main chemical created from EO is ethylene glycol, a chemical used in products from brake fluid to industrial solvents. Some studies have found it in e-cigarette liquids.
EO is also used to create healthcare products and sterilize medical devices.
C2H4O uses include:
Chemicals used to create fabrics for clothes, pillows and carpets
Fiberglass used in jet skis, bowling balls, and other products
Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic resin used to make packaging and beverage containers.
Sterilizing medical devices that are too delicate or sensitive for high-heat sterilizing, such as knee implants, bandages, electronics, and devices containing plastic
