Applications
Ribonuclease inhibitorDiethyl dicarbonate acts as an inhibitor of ryanodine binding to ryanodine/calcium(II) receptor channel. It is useful for specific inactivation of nucleases during isolation of undegraded polynucleotides. Further, it inhibits platelet-activating factor acetyl hydrolase. In addition to this, it is involved in the modification reagent for His and Tyr residues in proteins.

Solubility
Miscible with chloroform, ethanol, esters, ketones and hydrocarbons. Slightly miscible with water.
