DEG| Diethylene Glycol| Di Ethylene Glycol

DEG, Diethylene Glycol, Di Ethylene Glycol

Diethylene glycol, DEG is an organic compound with the formula (HOCH2CH2)2O. Diethylene glycol, DEG is a colorless, practically odorless, poisonous, hygroscopic liquid with a sweetish taste. DEG is a widely used solvent. Diethylene glycol is derived as a co-product with ethylene glycol and triethylene glycol. The reactivity and solubility of Diethylene glycol provide the basis for many applications.

Diethylene glycol, commonly referred to as DEG, is similar in properties to ethylene glycol, but with a higher boiling point, viscosity and specific gravity.

Diethylene Glycol Properties

Diethylene glycol, DEG has a higher boiling point, viscosity, and specific gravity. Diethylene glycol is produced by the partial hydrolysis of ethylene oxide. Depending on the conditions, varying amounts of DEG and related glycols are produced.DEG is a water-soluble liquid.
