The Concept of Diethyl Carbonate

Date:2017-05-23 Author: Click:

The concept of diethyl carbonate (CAS:105-58-8, English name: Diethyl carbonate) is a dicarbonate of ethanol, which is colorless and clear liquid at room temperature. They are mainly used as solvents for cellulose nitrate, resins and some medicines (such as erythromycin), as well as intermediates for organic synthesis (such as phenobarbital and pyrethroids). It can also be used in the electrolyte of lithium batteries.
