Ethylmorpholine, also known as 2-ethylmorpholine, is a clear, colorless liquid with a mild amine-like odor. It is commonly used as a corrosion inhibitor in metalworking fluids, as a solvent and reaction medium in the production of pharmaceuticals, and as a water-miscible organic solvent.
When rubber is exposed to ethylmorpholine, it can become brittle and prone to cracking and breaking. The rubber may also swell and become soft, and the surface may become discoloured. The severity of these failures depends on the type of rubber used, the concentration of the chemical, and the duration of exposure.
