Applications
Hexaethylene glycol exhibits antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties. It also shows potential application as functional hydraulic fluids. It is used as a surfactant building block as well as used in biological sample preparation. Further, it is employed in the synthesis of binaphthol-based macrocyclic ethers using intramolecular oxidative coupling with CuCl(OH).

Solubility
Miscible with chloroform and methanol. 

Notes
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
