 Synonyms & Historicals
Ethylene Glycols .
Glycols, Ethylene .
Dihydroxyethanes .
Ethanediols .
An ethylene compound with two hydroxy groups (-OH) located on adjacent carbons. They are viscous and colorless liquids. Some are used as anesthetics or hypnotics. However, the class is best known for their use as a coolant or antifreeze. .
Glyoxal .
Ethanedial .
Ethanedione .
A 2-carbon aldehyde with carbonyl groups on both carbons. .
Ethane .
A two carbon alkane with the formula H3C-CH3. .
Ethylene Glycol .
1,2-Ethanediol .
2-Hydroxyethanol .
Monoethylene Glycol .
1,2 Ethanediol .
2 Hydroxyethanol .
Glycol, Ethylene .
Glycol, Monoethylene .
A colorless, odorless, viscous dihydroxy alcohol. It has a sweet taste, but is poisonous if ingested. Ethylene glycol is the most important glycol commercially available and is manufactured on a large scale in the United States. It is used as an antifreeze and coolant, in hydraulic fluids, and in the manufacture of low-freezing dynamites and resins. .
Oxalates .
Ethanedioic Acids .
Oxalic Acids .
Acids, Ethanedioic .
Acids, Oxalic .
Oxalic Acids .
Derivatives of OXALIC ACID. Included under this heading are a broad variety of acid forms, salts, esters, and amides that are derived from the ethanedioic acid structure. .
Acetaldehyde .
Ethanal .
A colorless, flammable liquid used in the manufacture of acetic acid, perfumes, and flavors. It is also an intermediate in the metabolism of alcohol. It has a general narcotic action and also causes irritation of mucous membranes. Large doses may cause death from respiratory paralysis. .
Ethanol .
Absolute Alcohol .
Grain Alcohol .
Alcohol, Absolute .
Alcohol, Grain .
Ethyl Alcohol .
Alcohol, Ethyl .
A clear, colorless liquid rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed throughout the body. It has bactericidal activity and is used often as a topical disinfectant. It is widely used as a solvent and preservative in pharmaceutical preparations as well as serving as the primary ingredient in ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. .
