Dimethoxyethane Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Dimethoxyethane is a liquid ether that is used as a solvent. It is often used as a higher boiling alternative to diethyl ether and THF. It forms chelate complexes with cations and acts as a bidentate ligand. It is therefore often used in organometallic chemistry like Grignard reactions, hydride reductions, and palladium-catalyzed reactions like Suzuki reactions and Stille coupling. It is also a good solvent for oligo- and polysaccharides.
