ethylenediamine

CAS No. 107-15-3

Formula: C2H8N2
Basic Info

Ethylenediamine (abbreviated as en when a ligand) is the organic compound with the formula C2H4(NH2)2. This colorless liquid with an ammonia-like odor is a strongly basic amine. It is a widely used building block in chemical synthesis, with approximately 500,000 tonnes produced in 1998. Ethylenediamine readily reacts with moisture in humid air to produce a corrosive, toxic and irritating mist, to which even short exposures can cause serious damage to health (see safety).

  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

In one standard dilution test using non-acclimated sewage seed, 24 and 47% of the theoretical BOD was removed after 5 and 20 days, respectively, in fresh water, and 2 and 16%, respectively, in salt water(1). In a second standard dilution test using non-acclimated sewage seed, 0.6 and 17% BOD was removed in 5 days using fresh and salt water, respectively(2). The concentration of the ethylenediamine was 7 to 10 ppm in both studies(1,2). Using acclimated activated sludge, 97.5% COD was removed at a rate of 9.8 mg COD/g/hr (3), 67% of the theoretical BOD was removed in 5 days in a second study(4) and 36 and 70% of the theoretical BOD was removed in 5 and 20 days, respectively, in a third study(1). Ethylenediamine, at a concentration of 100 mg/l, showed a 93 to 95% theoretical BOD loss over a 28 day period in the Japanese MITI test using an activated sludge inoculum(5).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of less than 1 was calculated for ethylenediamine(SRC), using a log Kow of -2.04(1)and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low.

12.4 Mobility in soil

Ethylenediamine has two primary amine groups and at the pH range found in most soils it is expected to be partially protonated given a pKa1 of 10.7 and a pKa2 of 7.6(1). An average Koc of 4766 (range=2071 to 6160) was measured for ethylenediamine in six different soils; five were from the vadose zone and one from an aquifer (saturated zone)(2). pH values ranged from 6.0 to 9.6 and the fraction of organic carbon from 0.0024 to 0.0391 for this group of soils. Soils with increased cation exchange capacity and organic content had greater affinity for ethylenediamine(2).

Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
  General Information:
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Flammable liquid and vapor. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Vapors can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.

Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
  General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks:
Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Remove all sources of ignition.
Use a spark-proof tool. Provide ventilation. Evacuate unnecessary personnel. Approach spill from upwind. Use water spray to cool and disperse vapors, protect personnel, and dilute spills to form nonflammable mixtures.

Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
  Handling:
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Use only with adequate ventilation or respiratory protection.
Storage:
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Flammables-area. Store protected from moisture. Do not store in copper or copper alloy storage vessels.

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
  Engineering Controls:
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
