Oct 2020. Ethyl ether, also known as diethyl ether, or often referred to as just “ether,” is used as a reaction or extraction solvent in the chemical, fragrance, and pharmaceutical industries. As an extraction medium, it is used to extract acetic acid and organic acids from aqueous systems in the cellulose acetate and plastics industry. In the automotive sector, it has various applications, such as use as an octane and oxygen enhancer in gasoline, and in diesel starting fluids, lubricating oils, and removal of paints and varnishes. When combined with ethanol, ethyl ether finds use as a solvent for cellulose nitrate in gunpowder manufacture and pyroxylin plastics. Ethyl ether also finds use in pharmaceuticals as a solvent for drugs, and also because of the toxicity of the vapors, can be used as an insecticide and fumigant.
