Application

Tri(propylene glycol) methyl ether can be used:
  • As a solvent in resins, coatings, dyes for textiles, leather, and cosmetics.
  • As a fuel additive for minimizing the particulate matter emission.
  • To prepare water-mimicking non-aqueous ionic liquids for enzyme compatibility in the trans-esterification process.

The addition of oxygen-bearing compounds to diesel fuel considerably reduces particulate emissions. TGME and DBM have been identified as possible diesel additives based on their physicochemical characteristics and performance in engine tests. Although these compounds will reduce particulate emissions, their
