Ethylene, C2H4, is a highly flammable, colorless and non corrosive gas with a sweet odor. 

Ethylene is used as an anesthetic, a refrigerant, and to make other chemicals as polymers and plastics.

Ethylene is produced in petrochemical processes, as steam cracking  where hydrocarbons and steam are heated to 750–950 °C. This process converts large hydrocarbons into smaller ones and introduces unsaturated products.
