More product details can be found in the BASF Product Finder.

Glykolether

CAS: 111-76-2
Ethylenglykolmono-n-butylether, 2-Butoxyetha­nol, 1-Hydroxy-2-n-butoxy-ethan 

Colorless, neutral, slightly hygroscopic, mobile liquid with a mild odor. The product is miscible with water and common organic solvents in all proportions at room temperature.

Butylglycol shows the reactions typical of an alcohol, such as esterification, etherification, oxidation and the formation of acetates and alcoholates. Like most ethers, it forms peroxides in the presence of atmospheric oxygen.

CAS: 112-34-5
Diethylenglykolmonobutylether, 2-(2-Butoxyethoxy)ethanol

Butyldiglycol is a clear, low-volatility, mobile liquid with a very faint, mild odor. It is miscible with many common solvents, e. g. aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, ethers, glycols, glycol ethers and water. It may form peroxides if it comes into contact with atmospheric oxygen.

CAS: EC 907-996-4
Mixture of ethylene glycol monoalkyl ethers

Butyltriglycol is a clear, low-volatility, mobile liquid with a very faint, mild odour. It is miscible with many common solvents, e. g. aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, ethers, glycols, glycol ethers and water. Butyltriglycol may form peroxides, if it comes into contact with atmospheric oxygen.

CAS: 107-98-2
Methoxy-1,2-propanol, Propylene glycol-1-methyl ether, Methoxy-1,2-hydroxpropane, Methylpropylene glycol 

Solvenon® PM is a clear, hygroscopic, medium-volatility liquid with a mild, alcoholic odor. It is miscible with water and many common organic solvents.

By virtue of its ether and alcohol groups, Solvenon® PM has very good solvent power for many of the raw materials used in coatings, e. g. resins, binders, etc. It possesses the typical properties of the ether and alcohol groups. For instance, it may react with acids (or form esters), oxidizing agents (to form the corresponding ketones or carboxylic acids), alkali metals (to form alcoholates) or aldehydes (to form acetals). Solvenon® PM may form peroxides with atmospheric oxygen.
