Formula: C2H6, R170
Ethane is a flammable, colorless, odorless, liquefied gas. It has many applications, both industrial and specialty. It is commonly used as a starting material for the production of halogenated alkanes, alcohols, and other organic compounds. Large quantities are used to produce plastics, antifreeze, and detergents.
Ethane is used a refrigerant, replacing substances that are harmful to the ozone layer or have large greenhouse warming potentials.
And, it is important for semiconductor manufacturing where ethane and ethane mixtures are used for etch modulation.
- Main use is for the production of ethene by steam cracking
- Commonly used as a raw material for the manufacturing of halogenated ethanes
- Has been used as a refrigerant for extremely low temperature refrigerating systems
