1,3-dioxolane is a colorless liquid that is miscible with water and most common organic solvents. It is a very good solvent for lacquers and resins and can be used for paint remover and thinner. It is useful in mixtures with glycol or glycol ethers to dissolve difficult-to-dissolve components such as pesticides, herbicides and wood preservatives. It is a stabilizer for glues, impregnating resins and dispersions.
Dioxolane Use in Adhesives
Solutions of crystalline polyesters are used in heat-sealable coatings and adhesive applications. The polyesters were formally known to be soluble only in highly toxic solvents such as dioxane and chlorinated solvents. Uses for these adhesives are heat-seal lids for food products such as butter, yogurt and jelly. They are used in packaging for foods to be microwaved or oven heated, and as industrial laminates, such as in sail cloth, cable wrap, flexible circuitry and solar protection film.

Glymes ``Glycol Diethers`` and Specialty Solvents
Glymes, also known as glycol diethers, are some of the most powerful solvents available today for an incredibly wide variety of industrial processes and products. Glymes are saturated polyethers with no functional groups; hence, they are aprotic compounds that are relatively inert chemically. These features account for their excellent solvent properties. In general, glymes are most frequently used in reactions involving metals, inorganic salts and organometallics. Common examples are grignard reactions, reactions of alkali metals, anionic polymerization, metal hydride reactions and hydrobrominations.
While the use of solvent extraction to recover metals is not new technology, it is an under-utilized technology even though there is ample evidence and experience validating this technique. In many cases, solvent extraction can provide significant reductions in operational costs in comparison to more traditional methods of metal recovery and refining.
A true, clear, single-phase grignard solution (2.5 M) can be directly produced in butyl diglyme. For commercial processes, grignards made with butyl diglyme are safer and more environmentally friendly. This is a result of the high flash point and water insolubility characteristics of butyl diglyme.
