Applications

Benzyl ether is used as an effective GFP friendly tissue clearing medium for mouse brains. It is also used in a study to develop a detailed protocol for performing 3D imaging of solvent-cleared organs and its application to various microscopy techniques. It is also employed as a plasticizer for nitrocellulose and synthetic rubber, a solvent in perfumery, and a flavoring agent in chewing gums and baked goods.

Notes

Store away from oxidizing agents and light. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition.
