Diethyl phthalate (DEP)

Diethyl phthalate (DEP) is a commonly used denaturant that is created through the reaction of phthalic anhydride with ethanol. DEP is used in the production of denatured alcohol due to its ability to render the alcohol undrinkable without significantly altering its physical characteristics. This means that denatured alcohol containing DEP retains its evaporation rate, solubility, and other key properties.

One denaturant, various uses

Denatured alcohol containing DEP finds application across various industries. It serves as a key ingredient in cosmetics, cleaning products, and fuel manufacturing. By incorporating DEP into denatured alcohol, these industries ensure the product is unsuitable for consumption while retaining its effectiveness for specific uses.
