Diethyl Sulfate is an one of the most commercially important dialkyl sulfates, and appears as highly toxic colorless, corrosive, oily liquid that darkens with age and has a faint peppermint odor. It is a possible mutagen and is anticipated to be a human carcinogen based on evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals, and may be associated with developing laryngeal cancer. Diethyl Sulfate can manufactured by addition of sulfur trioxide to dimethyl ether, by addition of sulfuric acid to diethyl ether or ethanol, and from ethanol and sulfuryl chloride. Diethyl Sulfate is used as an alkylating agent, as an accelerator in the sulfation of ethylene and in some sulfonation reactios, and in the preparation of ethyl derivatives of amines, phenols, and thiols.
