DIGLYCIDYL ETHER Usage And Synthesis
clear colorless liquid
Diglycidyl ether is significant only because it is a possible trace component of epoxy compounds derived from epichlorohydrin.
Diluent for epoxy resins; stabilizer of chlorinated organic compounds
Colorless liquid with a pronounced irritating odor. Used as a reactive dilutent for epoxy resin , as a chemical intermediate, as a stabilizer of chlorinated organic compounds, and as a textile-treating agent.
Air & Water Reactions
Oxidizes readily in air to form unstable peroxides that may explode spontaneously [Bretherick, 1979 p.151-154, 164].
Epoxides, such as DIGLYCIDYL ETHER, are highly reactive. They polymerize in the presence of catalysts or when heated. These polymerization reactions can be violent. Compounds in this group react with acids, bases, and oxidizing and reducing agents. They react, possibly violently with water in the presence of acid and other catalysts.
DIGLYCIDYL ETHER can cause death or permanent injury via oral and inhalation routes during exposure that comes from normal use. It is incapacitating and poisonous and requires special handling. It can cause considerable discomfort by the dermal route.
(Non-Specific -- Poison, Flammable Liquid, n.o.s.) May be ignited by heat, sparks, or flames. Container may explode in heat of fire. Vapor explosion and poison hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Avoid strong oxidizers.
Suspected carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data. Poison by ingestion, inhalation, and intravenous routes. Moderately toxic by skin contact. A severe eye and skin irritant. Mutation data reported. Chronic exposure can cause bone marrow depression. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and fumes. See also ETHERS.
In mice, diglycidyl ether has been shown to produce epithelioma following repeated skin application. A total dose of 100 mg produced these tumors in 4 of 20 animals; a dose of 33 mg produced only 1/20 .
