What is Diethylene Glycol?

Diethylene glycol, additionally called diethylene glycol, forms an ester when responding with acid anhydride. It reacts with alkyl sulfate or halogenated hydrocarbon to produce ether. It is generally made use of as a gas drying out agent and also extractant, and also as a lubricating substance and ending up agent for fabrics. From the duty of ethylene oxide as well as ethylene glycol obtained. Diethylene glycol has actually been widely made use of in different cosmetics as a solvent, warmth preservation agent, and viscosity control agent. It has been made use of in my nation for virtually two decades, as well as no worry have actually been found during this duration.

Diethylene Glycol Uses

1. Diethylene Glycol is mainly utilized as gas dehydration rep as well as likewise fragrant hydrocarbon removal solvent. It is additionally made use of as a solvent for nitrocellulose, resin, oil, releasing ink, and so forth, as a softener and likewise ending up representative for fabrics, as well as for drawing out coumarone and indene from coal tar.

Furthermore, Diethylene Glycol is additionally made use of as a brake oil compound, celluloid conditioner, antifreeze as well as diluent throughout emulsion polymerization. It is additionally made use of in the manufacturing of rubber as well as material plasticizers; polyester products; fiberglass; urethane foam; lubing oil thickness improvers and additionally numerous other products. Made use of to manufacture unsaturated polyester resin, and so forth.

2. Diethylene Glycol is used as an artificial unsaturated polyester material, plasticizer, etc. It is likewise made use of as antifreeze, gas dehydrating agent, plasticizer, solvent, aromatic hydrocarbon extraction agent, cigarette hygroscopic representative, textile lube as well as ending up representative, anti-drying representative for paste and also different adhesives, vat color hygroscopic co-solvent, and so on. It is a common solvent for grease, material, nitrocellulose, etc.

Detection Method of Diethylene Glycol in Cosmetics

Diethylene Glycol is a chemical compound with reduced poisoning. After getting in the human body, as a result of its fast metabolism and no obvious accumulation, no proof of carcinogenicity, teratogenicity and mutagenicity has actually been found up until now, but high-dose intake will certainly damage the kidneys. This basic material is a prohibited material in China, yet it may be inevitably created or generated as a safety and security threat substance throughout the raw materials, product packaging products, manufacturing, transport as well as storage of cosmetics. As a result, the detection of diethylene glycol in cosmetics has always been A more crucial examination item.

But until now, there is no ideal, exact and independent discovery technique. Normally, describe the “Physical and also Chemical Examination Method 2.20 Diethylene glycol” in the “Cosmetic Safety Technical Specs” (2015 edition), which is suitable for the decision of the diethylene glycol content in the cosmetic raw material propylene glycol. For the content of diethylene glycol in other raw materials, the examination outcomes are not precise. Or describe the “GB/T 21842-2008 Decision of diethylene glycol in tooth paste” method applied on December 1, 2008, to conduct confirmation tests on diethylene glycol in cleansing cosmetics, treatment cosmetics, as well as beauty/modification cosmetics. The speculative outcomes show that this criterion method can be utilized for the decision of diethylene glycol in cosmetics.

The brand-new recommended market standard “QB/T 5411-2019 Decision of the outlawed substance diethylene glycol in cosmetics by gas chromatography” was released on December 2, 2019, and will be implemented on April 1, 2020.

This basic specifies the gas chromatography-hydrogen fire ionization detector approach for the decision of Diethylene Glycol, a forbidden compound in cosmetics, and applies to the decision of Diethylene Glycol in cream, water, emulsion, and also gel cosmetics. The detection limit and also quantitation restriction of this criterion: the discovery limit of diethylene glycol in gels and also fluids is 200 mg/kg, and the quantification limit is 500 mg/kg. The detection limit of diethylene glycol in cream as well as cream examples is 200 mg/kg. The limit of detection was 400 mg/kg, as well as the limit of quantitation was 600 mg/kg.

Diethylene Glycol Process Flow:

Use the direct hydration method to mix ethylene oxide and water at a ratio of 1:8 and send them to the mixing reactor. At 150°C MPa, react for 40-60 minutes to generate a dehydration tower for further dehydration; the ethylene glycol mixture at the bottom of the tower is sent to the ethanol mixture. In the glycol tower, more than 99.8% of ethylene glycol can be obtained at the top of the tower.

The bottom liquid is sent to a rectification tower, and diethylene glycol is obtained from the top of the tower at a temperature of 135-140°C and a pressure of 4.0KPa. Continue the separation to obtain triethylene glycol and tetraethylene glycol.
