It is miscible with water, and can be miscible in ethyl alcohol, ether etc.
It is used to manufacture resin, plasticizer, synthetic fiber, cosmetics and explosives and used as the solvent and antifreeze agent for engine.
Package, storage and transportation
Before transportation, inspect whether the package container is complete and sealed, during transportation, ensure that the container will not have leakage, not collapse, fall and be damaged. It is prohibited to mix with oxidant and acids. When transported by boat, it should be isolated with cabin, electric power and fire source etc. During transportation by road, it is required to travel according to the route specified.
