Application of Diphenyl Oxide
Because of its odour reminiscent of scented geranium, as well as its stability and low price, diphenyl ether is used in large quantities in soaps, detergents & incense sticks. It is also used in many perfumes and has other perfumery applications.
DPO when blended with Biphenyl produces Thermic Fluid, which is widely used as high temperature heat transfer media. Such a mixture is well-suited for heat transfer applications because of the relatively large temperature range of its liquid state.
DPO is used in the manufacturing of blowing agents for rubber.
DPO on bromination gives Deca Bromo Diphenyl oxide, which is widely used in the plastics industry as a fire retardant.
Used in the manufacturing of high – temperature lubricants & industrial surfactants. In specialty surfactants which finds application in textiles, mining, petroleums, agriculture etc.
Due to its rosy, floral, geranium-like flavour it is used as a flavour for vegetable, yellow fruit, tropical fruit and other sweet flavours ingredients.
DPO can be used as a high boiling reaction solvent in the manufacturing of drugs like Chloroquine Phosphate (anti- malarial drug), Norfloxacin, Perfloxacin, Ciprofloxacin (broad spectrum antibiotics) etc.
Heat – transfer medium resins for laminated electrical insulation, chemical intermediate for such reactions as halogenations, Acylation, Alkylation etc.
