The preparation of solid derivatives of monoalkyl ethers of ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol

In the identification of any organic compound the final step is the formation of a solid derivative. This work was undertaken therefore, in an attempt to prepare solid compounds of the monoalkyl ethers of ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol which would be suitable for identification. Although several methods were tried, only two appeared to be suitable. The urethanes obtained by the use of p-nitrophenyl isocyanate and the picrates of the amino-ethers which resulted from the use of the 2-(4-morpholinyl)-ethyl chloride were, alone, applicable to analysis work.
