Storage & Sensitivity
Keep Cold. Moisture Sensitive.
Insoluble in water. Contact with water releases a flammable alcohol. Soluble in chloroform and methanol.


Tetraethyl Orthocarbonate is used in the synthesis of chemokine receptor-5 inhibitors against HIV-1, benzobisoxazoles and in the preparation of organic semiconductors. It is also employed in the synthesis of 2,7-dimethylene-1,4,6,9-tetraoxaspiro[4,4]nonane and in the synthesis of cross linked poly(orthocarbonate)s used as organic solvent absorbent.


Moisture Sensitive. Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition. Keep away from ignition sources. Store under inert atmosphere and refrigerated.
