    Common Uses and Benefits of Petroleum Ether

    Petroleum ether is a light hydrocarbon of the pentane family and a natural byproduct of the gasoline refining process. It’s formula is C6H14. It is commonly used as a nonpolar solvent by pharmaceutical companies and in laboratories. Petroleum ether is also known as benzine. It can be used to isolate compounds and suspend fats and lipids without damaging the essential compositions. It is also used as a glue remover, a detergent, a fuel, and in the manufacturing industry. Petroleum ether can be used in paints, photography and as a tool for making plant-based extracts. Although it is not classified as an ether in terms of IUPAC nomenclature. Petroleum ether’s classification is figurative to identify its extreme lightness and volatility. Petroleum ether is the petroleum fraction of aliphatic hydrocarbons. It is a colorless, non-fluorescent liquid with a gasoline-like odor. It is insoluble in water, but it is soluble in ethanol. Petroleum ether has a low flash point. This can cause a fire hazard. It should be stored in a safe location and kept away from any source of ignition. Lab Alley has Petroleum Ether ACS Grade for sale. Lab Alley has fast shipping in the USA.

    Petroleum Ether vs Diethyl Ether

    Petroleum ether and diethyl ether are two very different chemicals, they have little in common so it is important to know the difference. Diethyl ether is a pure organic chemical. Diethyl ether is truly an ether in terms of the organic nomenclature. Basically, this just means that it has an oxygen atom with carbons on either side. On the other hand, petroleum ether does not contain an ether linkage and it is not made up of a single chemical. It is a mixture of hydrocarbons including pentane and hexane. Diethyl ether is a clear colorless liquid, its vapors have a sweet smell and are heavier than air. Petroleum ether is also a colorless liquid, but its vapors smell like gasoline. Diethyl ether is toxic, and inhalation of large amounts can cause nausea and in some cases a coma. Petroleum ether is also an irritant and if ingested it can also cause a coma. Diethyl ether can sometimes be soluble in water. Whereas petroleum ether is always insoluble in water. They both have highly volatile properties and are found in a liquid form at room temperature. Diethyl ether is used to make other chemicals and in biomedical research. Petroleum ether is used as a solvent, fuel, detergent. It is also used in photography, paints and many more uses. Lab Alley sells Diethyl Ether and Petroleum Ether. They offer fast shipping in the USA.
