Chemical Information
FooDB NameDiphenyl ether
DescriptionPresent in muscat grapes, green tea, vanilla, lemon balm, buckwheat, potato chips and grilled beef. Flavouring ingredient Diphenyl ether is a starting material in the production of phenoxathiin via the Ferrario reaction. Phenoxathiin is used in polyamide and polyimide production.; Involving similar reactions, diphenyl ether is a significant side product in the high-pressure hydrolysis of chlorobenzene in the production of phenol.; Several polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are useful flame retardants. Of penta-, octa-, and decaBDE, the three most common PBDEs, only decaBDE is still in widespread use since its ban in the European Union in 2003. DecaBDE, also known as decabromodiphenyl oxide, is a high-volume industrial chemical with over 450,000 kilograms produced annually in the United States. Decabromodiphenyl oxide is sold under the trade name Saytex 102 as a flame retardant in the manufacture of paints and reinforced plastics. Diphenyl ether is found in many foods, some of which are tea, alcoholic beverages, cereals and cereal products, and fruits.
