What is Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate?

With the progress of science and technology and the development of society, chemical products have invariably permeated our daily lives, in medicine, food, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and other areas, becoming an essential part of our lives. One such product is Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate which has developed particularly rapidly in recent years. Do you know about Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate?


The official answer: Ethylene glycol ethyl ether acetate is a colorless liquid, miscible with normal organic solvents and soluble in water. It has a pleasant ester fragrance. It is used as a solvent and with other compounds as leather adhesive, paint stripper, metal hot plating anti-corrosion coating, etc.

What’s the application of Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether acetate?

  1. It is obtained by reacting ethylene glycol monoethyl ether with ethyl anhydride by mixing ethyl anhydride and concentrated sulfuric acid, heating to 130℃, then slowly adding ethylene glycol monoethyl ether drop by drop, maintaining the reaction temperature at 130-135℃, adding and refluxing for 1-2h, refluxing at 140℃. After cooling, neutralize with sodium carbonate to pH=7-8, and then dry with industrial anhydrous potassium carbonate. Filter out the drying agent for crude fractional distillation and collect the distillate between 150-160°C. Re-fractionate and collect the fraction between 155.5-156.5°C i.e. Chemicalbook as the finished product. It can also be obtained from the reflux reaction of ethylene glycol monoethyl ether with acetic acid catalyzed by concentrated sulfuric acid in benzene. Ethylene glycol monoethyl ether reacts with acetic acid catalyzed by cationic resin, the generated water is continuously removed, and then the finished product is distilled. 94.5% conversion of acetic acid is obtained by this method, and the selectivity of the product is 98.5%. 2. 2-Ethoxyacetic acid reacts with ethanol. 3. Ethyl acetate and ethoxyethanol ester exchange method. 4. Acetic acid reacts with ethoxyethanol. 5. Ethyl oxide and ethyl acetate reaction method. Ethylene glycol ethyl ether acetate is mainly used as a solvent for metal and furniture spray paint, solvent for brush painting, also used as a solvent for protective paint, dye, resin, leather, ink, also used in the formulation of metal, glass, and other hard surface cleaning agents, and as chemical reagent. Diethylene glycol ethyl ether acetate is mainly used as a copolymerizing agent for emulsion paints. It is an ideal solvent in the production of slow-drying nitrocellulose lacquer, natural lacquer, or spray lacquer because of its excellent solubility and slow evaporation rate.

Diethylene glycol ethyl ether acetate has some toxicity and has the possibility of being replaced by other higher-grade alcohol esters in Europe/USA/Japan.

Peter has been my partner for many years, we met at the Shanghai CPHI Fair in 2014, for the first time I didn't have much interest in Peter's products because our company had a stable supplier. Although we didn't work together, Peter would often send me important news and interesting trend information about the industry, so we became good friends, even though I didn't place any orders with him during this time, even if it was a sample order. In September 2016, our original supplier was unable to provide us with the quality and delivery guarantees we needed, so I first thought of Peter and his company. Until now, we have maintained a very good personal friendship in addition to a steady business relationship.

In all my years of sourcing from China, I first time to found that working with Sincere Chemical was so good, they helped me with all the production and delivery as well as a lot of technical expertise, which saved me a lot of time. When I first approached Peter for a quotation for Optical Brightener, he made me a detailed quotation with not only prices but also foreign trade details, company profile, company strengths, R&D capabilities, production capacity, packaging methods, raw material control, environmental protection, and much more. This information was a very important reference for me in making purchasing decisions. Sincere Chemical is a trustworthy supplier and I believe our business will grow from strength to strength!

Hi, I'm Kim, I'm Peter's partner and although I don't like him very much (because he never gives me more money for my prices, hahaha) I'm still willing to write him customer feedback. As an international buyer, I have to deal with a lot of things every day and my inbox is often full of development letters. It's a lot of junk and meaningless pleasantries, which I don't like that much, but Peter's emails always give me a better understanding of the product and the industry. I am also very pleased with his work ethic, and I am very happy with his work every time I work with him, not only in providing quotations but also in facilitating all the details of my work so that I can concentrate more on other things, so he is the best supplier for me. Although his prices are not the lowest among all suppliers, his products give me the greatest peace of mind.
