Properties and stability

Stable at room temperature and pressure, avoid contact with strong oxidants.

Storage method

Stored in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and water sources. should be kept away from oxidizer, do not store together. Equipped with the appropriate variety and quantity of fire equipment. Suitable materials should be available in the storage area to contain spills.

Synthesis method

Methoxyethanol is obtained by performing an addition reaction between ethylene oxide, methanol, and boron trifluoride ether, and neutralizing the reaction product. Then carry out esterification reaction with phthalic anhydride, and then use activated carbon to decolorize, distill, water wash, alkali wash, dehydration, and press filtration to obtain the finished product. After the esterification reaction product is washed with water, it is distilled under reduced pressure. This post-treatment process is also used in industrial production. The DMEP content of industrial products is ≥99. Raw material consumption quota: phthalic anhydride 750kg/t, ethylene oxide 820kg/t, methanol 660kg/t.


It is mainly used as a plasticizer for cellulose acetate. It is less volatile than diethyl phthalate, has good durability, and makes the film tough. It can be used in enameled wires, film films, high-strength varnishes, adhesives and laminate adhesives, etc.; it can also be used as sensitizer and solvent for gas chromatography fixatives and triacetic acid film bases. It can be used as a plasticizer for cellulose resin, vinyl resin, and synthetic rubber. It is less volatile than diethyl phthalate (DEP) and can give products good durability, toughness, and oil resistance. It is mainly used as a plasticizer for cellulose acetate in the manufacture of enameled wires, film films, high-strength varnishes, adhesives and laminate adhesives.
