MIGLYOL 840 is soluble in hexane, toluene, diethyl ether, ethyl acetate, acetone, isopropanol and ethanol 96%.
MIGLYOL 840 is miscible in all ratios with natural oils.
MIGLYOL 840 is not soluble in water and glycerol.
Miglyol 840 (Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate),cas no 77466-09-2;68583-51-7 is an ester of saturated coconut/palmkernel oil-derived caprylic and capric fatty acids and propylene glycol.
Miglyol 840 (Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate),cas no 77466-09-2;68583-51-7 is a propylene glycol diester of saturated plant fatty acids with chain lengths of C8 and C10. Therefore it has excellent emollient properties.
Miglyol 840 (Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate),cas no 77466-09-2;68583-51-7 is a clear, virtually colourless liquid of neutral odour and taste.
Miglyol 840 (Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate),cas no 77466-09-2;68583-51-7 is very pure because of its carefully selected raw materials. As a result of tightly controlled manufacturing process microorganisms are practically absent because of very low levels of water, i.e. microbials cannot sustain. It is free of additives such as antioxidants, solvents and catalyst residues.
The very low viscosity of MIGLYOL 840 makes it suitable as a carrier oil for s.c. injections in humans or s.c. injections in veterinary preparations.
Miglyol 840 (Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate),cas no 77466-09-2;68583-51-7 has the following advantages compared to edible oils:
- very good solvent for drugs.
- low in impurities (as a result of production according to GMP)
- high stability against oxidation
- liquid at 0 °C.
- excellent spreadability on the skin due to the very low viscosity and good skin absorption. - does not inhibit skin-respiration.
- excellent penetration-promoting, emollient and skin-smoothing properties.
Oil component, high spreading emollient with low viscosity.

*Material compatibility instructions
Miglyol 840 (Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate),cas no 77466-09-2;68583-51-7 is a good solvent, like other low-viscosity hydrophilic ester oils. Some plastics, especially those containing plasticizers, tend to turn brittle or to expand. Polystyrene and PVC are not suitable packaging materials. Be careful when selecting resistant seal closure material (e.g. VITON? is recommended) and be careful of sufficient pull power becauseMIGLYOL 840 has a very high tendency to migrate.
Storage and ShelfLife
Longterm storage in original tightly closed containers, dry, protected from light and moisture and below 25°C the shelf life then is at least three years.
