Diethylene glycol organic compounds , transparent , hygroscopic and odorless.
It is miscible with water and organic solvents .
Di -ethylene glycol has two groups which are connected to each other by one oxygen atom . With
ethylene glycol, di - and tetra ethylene glycol in ethylene oxidation reaction at high temperatures
and in the presence of silver oxide catalyst can be obtained
Plastic protective group for carbonyl groups in organic synthesis .
Preparation of ketones or aldehydes in the presence of acid catalyst . Diethylene glycol has high
toxicity . This material is toxic fumes when burning .
Diethylene glycol due to
water absorption characteristics , excellent stability against heat and
resistant , low vapor pressure and price of natural gas known as
A derivative of
polyethylene glycol as a whole has wide application in synthetic fibers ,
films, anti- freeze,anti- saturated polymer resins , explosives , fiber , paper, leather , protective coatings , printing inks and textile applications.
