General description

Diethylene glycol monoethyl ether (DEGMEE) is an organic solvent commonly used in the cosmetic industry. Its toxicity has been assessed. Various thermodynamic and optical parameters of an aqueous solution of DEGMEE have been determined. Its quantification along with diethylene glycol (DEG) and coumarin in food samples by gas chromatography-flame ionization technique has been reported.
