Safety Information
Ethylene glycol diacetate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesclear liquid
  • UsesSolvent for oils, cellulose esters, explosives, etc.
  • General DescriptionColorless liquid with a mild pleasant odor. Density 9.2 lb /gal. Flash point 191°F. Boiling point 369°F. Combustible but requires some effort to ignite. Used in the manufacture of perfumes, printing ink, lacquers and resins.
  • Air & Water ReactionsWater soluble.
  • Reactivity ProfileEthylene glycol diacetate reacts with aqueous acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated with alkali metals and hydrides.
  • Health HazardInhalation is not hazardous. Liquid causes mild irritation of eyes. Ingestion causes stupor or coma.
  • Fire HazardEthylene glycol diacetate is combustible.
  • Safety ProfileModerately toxic by intraperitoneal route. Mildly toxic by ingestion and skin contact. An eye irritant. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame; can react with oxidzing materials. To fight fire, use alcohol foam, CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
  • Purification MethodsDry the di-ester with CaCl2, filter (excluding moisture) and fractionally distil it under reduced pressure. [Beilstein 2 IV 1541.]
