Diethyl ethylphosphonate is used for heavy-metal extraction and solvent separation. It is also used as a gasoline additive, antifoam agent, plasticizer and textile conditioner. Further, it serves as an antistatic agent, flame retardant and as a general reagent in phosphinoalkene and phosphinoalkyne synthesis.
