Diethylene Glycol Monoethyl Ether is an organic compound derived from Ethylene Glycol. This protic solvent has characteristics of Diethyl ether, primary Alcohol, and Hydroxy polyether. It is also known as CARBITOL, Diethylene glycol ethyl ether, 2-(2-Ethoxyethoxy) ethanol, and Ethyl diglycol. It appears as clear, colorless liquid at room temperature. It is naturally hygroscopic having a mild characteristic odor. Purified Grade, also known as Pure or Practical Grade, does not satisfy any regulatory standards such as the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), the American Chemical Society (ACS), and the National Formulary (NF). Purified chemicals are produced by using different separation techniques, which enhances their purity up to 99.9% having a trace amount of water. Lab Alley is selling its premium quality products online in the United States of America. Lab Alley’s Diethylene Glycol Monoethyl Ether, Purified/USP Grade is available in a convenient packing of 500 mL bottle, making its handling easier for small-scale applications.

Glycol Ethers are a group of solvents based on alkyl ethers of ethylene glycol or propylene glycol commonly used in paints and cleaners. 

DB Solvent

Diethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether (DB Solvent) sold by Eastman is a high boiling glycol ether used in baking enamels to promote increased flow-out and leveling in paint films. It is also used in printing inks when very slow drying is desired. In textile dyeing, it promotes rapid, uniform penetration of dyes. This solvent is used as a coalescent in architectural paints, industrial latex paints, and as an organosol dispersant. Read more here.

About 2-(2-Ethoxyethoxy)ethanol From Wikipedia

2-(2-Ethoxyethoxy)ethanol, also known under many trade names, is the organic compound with the formula CH3CH2OCH2CH2OCH2CH2OH. It is a colorless liquid. It is a popular solvent for commercial applications. It is produced by the ethoxylation of ethanol. It is a solvent for dyes, nitrocellulose, paints, inks, and resins. It is a component of wood stains for wood, for setting the twist and conditioning yarns and cloth, in textile printing, textile soaps, lacquers, penetration enhancer in cosmetics, drying varnishes and enamels, and brake fluids. It used to determine the saponification values of oils and as a neutral solvent for mineral oil-soap and mineral oil-sulfated oil mixtures (giving fine dispersions in water). Read more here.

About Diethylene Glycol Monoethyl Ether From PubChem

Diethylene glycol monoethyl ether appears as a colorless, slightly viscous liquid with a mild pleasant odor. Flash point near 190°F. Used to make soaps, dyes, and other chemicals. Diethylene glycol monoethyl ether is a primary alcohol that is ethanol substituted by a 2-ethoxyethoxy group at position 2. It has a role as a protic solvent. It is a diether, a primary alcohol and a hydroxypolyether. It derives from a diethylene glycol. 

Information On Glycol Ether From Wikipedia 

Glycol ethers are a group of solvents based on alkyl ethers of ethylene glycol or propylene glycol commonly used in paints and cleaners. These solvents typically have a higher boiling point, together with the favorable solvent properties of lower-molecular weight ethers and alcohols. The word "Cellosolve" was registered in 1924 as a United States trademark by Carbide & Carbon Chemicals Corp. (later named Union Carbide Corp.) for "Solvents for Gums, Resins, Cellulose Esters, and the Like",; the first one was ethyl cellosolve (ethylene glycol monoethyl ether), with the name now generic[citation needed] for glycol ethers. 

Glycol ethers are either "e-series" or "p-series" glycol ethers, depending on whether they are made from ethylene oxide or propylene oxide, respectively. Typically, e-series glycol ethers are found in pharmaceuticals, sunscreens, cosmetics, inks, dyes and water-based paints, while p-series glycol ethers are used in degreasers, cleaners, aerosol paints and adhesives. Both E-series glycol ethers and P-series glycol ethers can be used as intermediates that undergo further chemical reactions, producing glycol diethers and glycol ether acetates. P-series glycol ethers are marketed as having lower toxicity than the E-series. Most glycol ethers are water-soluble, biodegradable and only a few are considered toxic.
