1.It is used for the production of lithium batteries and capacitors electrolyte in the electronic industry.
2.It is used as foaming agent for plastics and stabilizer for synthetic lubricating oil.
3.It is used as good solvent for polyacrylonitrile and PVC.
4.It is used as water glass system slurry and fiber finishing agent.
5.It is used for the synthesis of furazolidone, which is a broad-spectrum antibiotic for the prevention of coccidiosis in chickens.
It is soluble in water and organic solvents.
Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse.
Keep away from fire and heat sources.
should be kept away from oxidizer, do not store together.
Equipped with the appropriate variety and quantity of fire equipment.
The storage area should be equipped with leakage emergency treatment equipment and suitable storage materials.
1. Avoid contact with oxidants, acids and alkalis. It is a flammable liquid, so please pay attention to the fire source. It is not corrosive to copper, mild steel, stainless steel or aluminum.
2. Chemical properties: relatively stable, alkali can accelerate its hydrolysis, acid has no effect on hydrolysis. In the presence of metal oxides, silica gel, and activated carbon, it decomposes at 200°C to produce carbon dioxide and ethylene oxide. When it reacts with phenol, carboxylic acid and amine, β-hydroxyethyl ether, β-hydroxyethyl ester and β-hydroxyethyl urethane are produced respectively. Boil with alkali to produce carbonate. Ethylene glycol carbonate is heated at high temperature with alkali as a catalyst to generate polyethylene oxide. Under the action of sodium methoxide, sodium monomethyl carbonate is generated. Dissolve ethylene glycol carbonate in concentrated hydrobromic acid, heat it at 100°C for several hours in a sealed tube, and decompose it into carbon dioxide and ethylene bromide.
