Dipropylene glycol monomethyl ether Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

Dipropylene glycol monomethyl ether (DPM) is colorless liquid with a mild, pleasant odor. Because of its structure it is completely miscible with water and a wide variety of organic substances, and has the combined solubility characteristics of an alcohol, on ether and a hydrocarbon. It is used in formulations of brake fluids, lacquers, paints, varnishes, dye and ink solvents, wood stains, textile processes, dry cleaning soaps and cleaning compounds.

Uses

As solvent for automotive fluids, cleaners, dyes, coatings, inks, waxes, adhesives, agricultural products, insect repellents, and cosmetics; chemical intermediate.

Uses

Dipropylene glycol methyl ether is often used in combination with propylene glycol in cosmetics.

General Description

Colorless liquid with a weak odor .

Air & Water Reactions

Oxidizes readily in air to form unstable peroxides that may explode spontaneously [Bretherick, 1979 p.151-154, 164]. Miscible with water.

Reactivity Profile

Dipropylene glycol monomethyl ether may react violently with strong oxidizing agents. May generate flammable and/or toxic gases with alkali metals, nitrides, and other strong reducing agents. May initiate the polymerization of isocyanates and epoxides.

Health Hazard

CALL FOR MEDICAL AID. LIQUID: Irritating to skin and eyes. Harmful if swallowed. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Flush affected areas with plenty of water. IF IN EYES, hold eyelids open and flush with plenty of water. May be harmful by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. May cause irritation.

Fire Hazard

Combustible. Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.

Safety Profile

fddly toxic by ingestion and skin contact. An experimental skin and human eye irritant. A dd allergen. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame; can react with oxidizing materials. To fight fire, use dry chemical, CO2, mist, foam. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also GLYCOL ETHERS.
