Acetylene (C2H2), also called Ethyne, is a chemical compound comprised of Carbon and ‎Hydrogen. Acetylene is a hydrocarbon and the simplest alkyne. Acetylene does not have a ‎melting point at atmospheric pressures, and thus cannot exist as a liquid. At atmospheric ‎pressure, solid Acetylene will sublime at its melting point of −84.0 °C. Only at −80.8 °C ‎and at a minimal pressure of 1.27atm, liquid Acetylene can exist. Pure Acetylene is ‎odorless, but commercial grades usually have a marked odor due to impurities. Acetylene ‎produces the hottest and most concentrated primary flame of all industrial fuel gases. It is ‎unstable in its pure form and thus is usually handled as a solution, where Acetylene is ‎dissolved in Acetone. The cylinders that Acetylene is filled into are typically more ‎substantial than other cylinders because they are packed with a porous filler material. This ‎material’s purpose is to stop the Acetylene from reacting within the cylinder.‎

Acetylene is produced by:‎‎
The production of Acetylene gas is initialized by a chemical process in which calcium ‎carbide reacts with Water. The results in the production of Acetylene gas and Calcium ‎Hydroxide. Acetylene gas is extracted and then purified before being compressed and ‎filled into cylinders.‎‎

Some Applications of Acetylene:

      ⦿ Welding, Cutting, and Heat Treating
      ⦿ Industrial Processes
      ⦿ ‎ Laboratory and Analytical Processes
