Ethyl Green

Ethyl Green

The dye Ethyl Green ( C.I. 42590; C27H35N3ClBr is a triarylmethane dye. It is soluble in water.

Ethyl green is made of crystal violet by adding an ethyl group; crystal violet is therefore a possible contaminant.

Methyl green is a closely related dye used as a stain in histology. Methyl green and ethyl green are very similar and probably interchangeable.
