Butyl diglyme, also called diethylene glycol di-n-butyl ether, is a polar aprotic solvent with excellent thermal and chemical stability. Glymes, or glycol diethers, are a widely used family of saturated polyethers for increasing anion reactivity in a given system, thus affecting selectivity and reaction rates. Butyl diglyme is one of the heavier ethylene oxide based glymes available commercially.
Butyl diglyme is most commonly utilized as a high-performance solvent for both laboratory and industrial applications. It effectively solvates digital inks and decorative ceramic inks, since it is stable enough to withstand the high temperatures of these applications. It is also commonly used on small scales as an extraction solvent for gold from hydrochloric acid media, a process which results in an extremely high concentration of pure gold metal.
Butyl diglyme can also be used as an intermediate in the production of siloxane-based adjuvants.
