What is tri ethylene glycol?
What is tri ethylene glycol? This material is a viscous and colorless compound and has the ability to absorb moisture from the surrounding materials. Liquid solvent with the chemical formula C6H14O4 or HOCH2CH2CH2O2CH2OH and is known for its hygroscopic properties and ability to absorb moisture from liquids. It is obtained as a common product from the oxidation of ethylene at high temperatures in the presence of a silver oxide catalyst and then the hydration of ethylene oxide to obtain mono, di and tri from the ethylene glycol family. The main application of this material is in the preparation of vinyl polymer as a plasticizer. The compound is soluble in acetic acid, alcohols, glycerin and aldehydes, but is slightly soluble in diethyl ether. Industrial applications include chemical adhesives and fillers, adsorbents, fuels and fuel additives, dry cleaning, plasticity enhancement in vinyl polymers, air disinfectants, UV curable resins, lubricants, electronics and electrical materials.

This material is used to produce unsaturated polyester resins and polyurethane polyesters. It is also used in the textile industry as an air conditioner and lubricant to produce many synthetic and natural fibers.
In addition, it plays an important role in petrochemical processes as an extraction solvent and in gaseous processes as a drying agent and the production of some plastics and surfactants.
DEG is involved in the preparation of antifreeze, morphine synthesis, solvents, corrosion inhibitors, antioxidants.
