1,4-Dioxane, often called dioxane because the other of dioxane are rare, is a It is a colorless liquid with a faint sweet similar to that of It is classified as an This colorless liquid is mainly used as a stabilizer for the It is an occasionally used solvent for a variety of practical applications as well as in the laboratory.Dioxane is produced by the acid-catalysed dehydration of which in turn arises from the hydrolysis of The molecule is centrosymmetric, meaning that it adopts a typical of relatives of The molecule is conformationally flexible, and the boat conformation is easily adopted, as required for chelation to metal cations. In 1985, the global production capacity for dioxane was between 11,000 and 14,000 tons. In 1990, the total U.S. production volume of dioxane was between 10,500,000 and 18,300,000 pounds.
Dioxane has three isomers: in addition to 1,4-dioxane, 1,2-dioxane.

often called dioxane because the other isomers of dioxane are rare, is a heterocyclic organic compound. It is a colorless liquid with a faint sweet odor similar to that of diethyl ether. It is classified as an ether. This colorless liquid is mainly used as a stabilizer for thesolvent trichloroethane. It is an occasionally used solvent for a variety of practical applications as well as in the laboratory.
