Tetraethylene Glycol (TTEG) Product Information

Tetraethylene glycol (TTEG) is a transparent, colorless, practically odorless, low-volatility, moderate-viscosity, hygroscopic liquid. Tetraethylene glycol (TTEG) is completely miscible with water and many organic liquids. Tetraethylene glycol (TTEG) has properties similar to diethylene and triethylene glycols and may be used preferentially in applications requiring a higher boiling point, higher molecular weight, or lower hygroscopicity.

The hydroxyl groups on tetraethylene glycol (TTEG) undergo the usual alcohol chemistry, giving a wide variety of possible derivatives. Hydroxyls can be converted to aldehydes, alkyl halides, amines, azides, carboxylic acids, ethers, mercaptans, nitrate esters, nitriles, nitrite esters, organic esters, peroxides, phosphate esters, and sulfate esters.

Tetraethylene glycol (TTEG) may be used directly as a plasticizer or modified by esterification. The solubility properties of tetraethylene glycol (TTEG) are important for many applications. The end uses for tetraethylene glycol (TTEG) are numerous. See the following table.

Applications of Tetraethylene Glycol (TTEG)


  • Dehydration of natural gas
  • Moisturizing and plasticizing cork, adhesives



  • Safety glass
