Infobox disclaimer and references
Methoxyethane, also known as methyl ethyl ether, is a colorless gaseous ether with a medicine-like odor. It is water soluble, heavier than air and has the formula CH3OC2H5. Methoxyethane is an isomer of propanol.
It is extremely flammable and will easily ignite, and its inhalation may cause asphyxiation or dizzyness. As a Lewis base, it can react with Lewis acids to form salts and reacts violently with oxidizing agents.
