The reaction is:
2CH3OH ------> H2O+ CH3OCH3

methanol dehydration to dimethyl ether (DME). it is simple
C3H10O2 may be 1- or2 -propanol hydrate.
bcoz of the intermolecular hydrogen bonding in methyl alcohol the vapour pressure of the molecule equalises the atmospheric pressure at higher temperatures. there is no hydrogen bonding in dimethyl ether and hence the molecule escapes at relatively lower temperatures.
According to Wikipedia, it's done catalytically--they make methanol from natural gas, then turn the methanol into dimethyl ether. Now I need to know: what are you going to use this for? Apparently it's being considered as a substitute for diesel, but we already have biodiesel and the only "moderate modifications" you need to make to the engine for that are to replace your fuel hoses with ones biodiesel won't eat.
Dimethyl ether is polar. It is more polar than an equivalent alkene but not nearly as polar as an ester or an amide.
Dimethyl ether is CH3-O-CH3
C2H6O could be 1) Ethanol, CH3CH2OH 2) Dimethyl ether, CH3OCH3
The oxygen in the dimethyl ether gives it more polarity than pentane; thus making it soluble in water
Dimethyl ether or ethanol.
No, methoxymethane is an ether (dimethyl ether) not a hydrocarbon because of this single -O- in the middle of this molecule.
S(CH3)2 is the formula for Dimethyl Sulfide analogous to Dimethyl ether
I would say methanolEthers are slightly polar. Petroleum Ether is not actually an ether. It is combination of several different hydrocarbons. While Ethers are slighly polar, Petroleum Ether is nonpolar!
Dimethyl ether (DME) is the organic compound with the formula CH3OCH3. The simplest ether, it is a colourless gas that is a useful precursor to other organic compounds and an aerosol propellant. Dimethyl ether is also promising as a clean-burning hydrocarbon fuel.
One molecule of dimethyl ether will yield five molecules of product when burned, two carbon dioxide and three water.
No. For example, ethanol (CH3CH2OH) and dimethyl ether (CH3OCH3) are structural isomers but have different boiling points. (The boiling point of ethanol is much higher than the boiling point of dimethyl ether because ethanol molecules can form hydrogen bonds with each other while dimethyl ether molecules cannot.)
