Ethylenediamine (EDA) (1,2-diaminoethane) is commonly used in the manufacture of fuel additives, bleach activators, chelating agents and corrosion inhibitors, among other applications. It is the lowest molecular weight (60.10) member of the ethyleneamines family. It contains two primary amine groups and forms a maximum boiling azeotrope with water.

EDA is used primarily in the following applications:

Bleach Activator
Chelating Agents
Corrosion Inhibitors
Epoxy Curing Agents
Fuel Additives
Fungicides
Plastic Lubricant
Rubber Processing Additives
Textile Additives
Urethane Chemicals/Foams
