Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The substance is a diether of diethylene glycol. Its functional groups indicate no instabilities in common organic solvents. Stability in organic solvents is not considered critical. (Ref. 1)


Therefore testing for stability in organic solvents does not need to be performed.
