Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • 1,4-Dioxane, often called dioxane because the 1,2 and 1,3 isomers of dioxane are rare, is a heterocyclic organic compound.
  • It is a colorless liquid with a faint sweet odor similar to that of diethyl ether. It is classified as an ether.
  • It is a volatile organic compound that has a moderate vapor pressure and has a specific gravity of 1.033. It is very mobile and only weakly retarded by sorption during transport.
  • This colorless liquid is mainly used as a stabilizer for the solvent trichloroethane. It is an
    occasionally used solvent for a variety of practical applications as well as in the
  • Dioxane is produced by the acid-catalyzed dehydration of Diethylene glycol, which in turn arises from the hydrolysis of ethylene oxide.
  • Dioxane is primarily used as a stabilizer for 1,1,1-trichloroethane for storage and transport in aluminium containers.
  • 1,4-Dioxane is a cyclic ether, and is also known as p-dioxane, diethylene ether,
    diethylene dioxide and glycol ethylene ether. This compound is highly soluble in water, owing to its molecular structure.
  • It is flammable and is available in reagent technical ( more than 99.9% pure), spectrophotometric and scintillation grades.
  • It is used in various manufacturing process and is included in a variety of consumer and commercial products.
  • Dioxane is used as a reaction medium solvent in organic chemical manufacture, as a
    wetting agent and dispersing agent in textile processing, as a liquid scintillation
    counting medium, as a reagent for laboratory research and testing, in the preparation of histological sections for microscopic examination and in stain and printing compositions.
  • Uses include paper manufacturing solvent), paint and varnish remover, deodorants, shampoos , soaps and cosmetics, in furnigants and pesticides, in textile manufacturing,
    in pharmaceuticals as a purifying agent, and as an antifreeze additive.
  • The concentration of 1,4-Dioxane is measure by relating the MS response of the quantitation ion to the response of the deuterated surrogate standard quantitation ion.
  • 1,4 dioxane is also produced as a by-product during the manufacture of polyester.
  • It is a recalcitrant molecule to biodegrade under conventional biotreatment
  • 1,4-Dioxane is an EPA priority pollutant often found in contaminated ground waters and industrial effluents.
  •  The common techniques used for water purification are not applicable to 1,4-dioxane and the currently used method (distillation) is laborious and expensive.
  • It is a byproduct of the hydrolysis of ethylene oxide and can be found in approximately 46% of all personal care products like lotions, shampoos and liquid soaps.
  • Testing for 1,4-Dioxane at low levels can be problematic due to its affinity for water, decreasing its volatility and purge efficiency by traditional purge and trap methods.
  • Chemical characteristics of 1,4-dioxane such as high mobility, enable it to migrate much further than the solvent from which it likely originated.
  • A catalyzed conversion of diethylene glycol to 1,4-dioxane undertaken over zeolites, ZSM-5,ZSM-48 and Zeolites beta is characterized by high selectivity.
  • Dioxane is an important industrial solvent for cellulose esters and ether, and other oils and resins. It can be produced from the less valuable reactant, diethylene glycol.
  • Dehydrating polyethylene glycol to 1,4-dioxane using a solid cation exchange resin as the dehydration catalyst.
  • A Process for destroying dioxane in a water vapor stream includes combusting the stream to decompose dioxane contained therein.
  •  The process is particularly useful for removal of dioxane from byproducts streams which result during the production of polyester.
  • A bromine chloride complex of p-dioxane has been discovered which is useful as a solid source of bromine chloride.
  • A dioxane-bromine chloride complex formed by mixing bromine chloride with dioxane in methylene chloride at 10C. has been used to selectively brominate salicylanilide.
