Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to ethylenediamine dihydrochloride (CAS RN 333-18-6), diethylenetetramine (CAS RN 1336-49-8), ethylenediamine monohydrate (CAS RN 6780-13-8), ethylenediamine hydrochloride (CAS RN 15467-15-9), ethylenediamine sulfate (CAS RN 22029-36-3), ethylenediamine tartrate (CAS RN 22719-15-9), and ethylenediamine succinate (CAS RN 57213-61-3). Ethylenediamine (EDA), also known as 1,2-diaminoethane, is an organic compound that is used as a building block for the production of many other chemical products. Ethylenediamine is a chemical intermediate used in the manufacture of dyes, fungicides, waxes, insecticides, resins, casein, lacquer, and shellac. It is also used in many industrial processes. Ethylenediamine is used as a stabilizer, emulsifier, and preservative in topical fungicides, antibiotic creams, eye drops, and nose drops. It forms a stable mixture with theophylline to produce aminophylline or aminophylline hydrate. It is an ingredient of some topical creams. Ethylenediamine is a component of soldering flux used in the electronics industry. Mycolog II® cream no longer contains ethylenediamine however, many generic versions still use the older formulation which utilizes ethylenediamine as a stabilizer. Ethylenediamine has been used in veterinary medicine as a urinary acidifier. Finally, ethylenediamine is approved for use within allergenic epicutaneous patch tests which are indicated for use as an aid in the diagnosis of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) in persons 6 years of age and older.
