Chemical Ethylene Oxide

Name Ethylene Oxide
CAS Type 1 Name Oxirane
Equivalent Terms Oxide, Ethylene | Oxirane
CAS Registry Number 75-21-8
Definition A colorless and flammable gas at room temperature and pressure. Ethylene oxide is a bactericidal, fungicidal, and sporicidal disinfectant. It is effective against most micro-organisms, including viruses. It is used as a fumigant for foodstuffs and textiles and as an agent for the gaseous sterilization of heat-labile pharmaceutical and surgical materials.
