1,2-Diaminoethane is an organic compound. This colorless liquid with an ammonia-like odor is a strongly basic amine. It is a widely used building block in chemical synthesis. 1,2-Diaminoethane is used in large quantities for production of many industrial chemicals. It forms derivatives with carboxylic acids, nitriles, alcohols, alkylating agents, carbon disulfide, and aldehydes and ketones. Because of its bifunctional nature, having two amines, it readily forms heterocycles such as imidazolidines. 1,2-Diaminoethane is a well-known chelating ligand for coordination compounds.
