General description

Benzyl ether is a plasticizer for nitrocellulose and a solvent in perfumery.

Application

Benzyl ether was used as an effective GFP friendly tissue clearing medium for mouse brains. It was used in a study to develop a detailed protocol for performing 3D imaging of solvent-cleared organs and its application to various microscopy techniques.

Generally, chemical tissue clearing is performed by a solution consisting of two parts benzyl benzoate and one part benzyl alcohol. However, prolonged exposure to this mixture markedly reduces the fluorescence of GFP expressing specimens, so that one has to compromise...

In patients hypersensitive to p-tert-butylphenol-formaldehyde resin (PTBP-F-R), it is for diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive reasons necessary to know the identity of the primary sensitizing substances, their sensitizing capacities as well as their cross-reaction patterns. We have recently shown that the...
