Applications
Tetraethylene glycol is used as a solvent to dissolve water-insoluble compounds. It is employed as a nitrocellulose solvent, a plasticizer, a natural gas desiccant, a hydraulic fluid and in lacquers and coatings. Furthermore, it is used in the synthesis of tetraethylene glycol methacrylate monomer. It acts as a chemical intermediate and acts as a solvent for the manufacturing of inks and dyes. In addition, it serves as a coupling agent in the production of textile lubricants and formulations.

Solubility
Miscible with water, ethanol, acetone, acetic acid, glycerin, pyridine, aldehydes, carbon tetrachloride and diethyl ether. Immiscible with oil, benzene, toluene, fat and aliphatic hydrocarbons.

Notes
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases.
