Applications

Diphenyl ether is widely used as a heat transfer agent and a dye carrier. It is employed as a processing aid in the production of polyesters. It acts as a chemical intermediate in the production of surface active agents and high temperature lubricants, fire retardants like polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and fragrance for detergents. It plays a vital role in the Ferrario reaction to produce phenoxathiin, which finds application in polyamide and polyimide production.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
