    Description

    Applications
    Cyclopentyl methyl ether is a hydrophobic ether solvent widely used in Grignard reaction, Friedel-Crafts reaction, Claisen condensation and Beckmann reaction. It plays an important role in extraction and polymerization reactions as well as in surface coatings. It is considered as a replacement for tetrahydrofuran, methyl tert-butyl ether, dioxane and other existing ether solvents due to its excellent properties like high boiling point and relative stability under acidic and basic conditions.

    Solubility
    Miscible with water, alcohols, ketones and hydrocarbons.

    Notes
    Store in cool place. Air and light sensitive. Incompatible with oxidizing agents, acids, nitric acid, hydrogen peroxide and hydrazine.
