Triethylene Glyco Feature:
Triethylene glycol is a colorless odorless hygroscopic viscous liquid. With water, alcohol, propyl alcohol, benzene and other miscible. In addition, triethylene glycol passable dissolved ortho dichlorobenzene, phenol, nitrocellulose, cellulose acetate and dextrin, but insoluble in petroleum ether resin and grease.
Uses of Triethylene Glycol:
It is not only used as a plasticizer for vinyl, but also used in Air-Sanitizer products.
When aerosolized, it acts as a disinfectant.
Additionally, Triethylene glycol is also used as liquid desiccants for natural gas and in air conditioning systems.
Furthermore, it is an additive for hydraulic fluids and brake fluids and used as a base for "smoke machine" fluid in the entertainment industry.
2,2'-(Ethylenedioxy)diethanol is a ether-alcohol derivative. The ether being relatively unreactive. Flammable and/or toxic gases are generated by the combination of alcohols with alkali metals, nitrides, and strong reducing agents. They react with oxoacids and carboxylic acids to form esters plus water. Oxidizing agents convert alcohols to aldehydes or ketones. Alcohols exhibit both weak acid and weak base behavior. They may initiate the polymerization of isocyanates and epoxides. Reacts with strong oxidants.
