 Synonyms & Historicals
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. .
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. .
Propylene Glycol .

Macrogols .
Polyoxyethylenes .
Polymers of ETHYLENE OXIDE and water, and their ethers. They vary in consistency from liquid to solid depending on the molecular weight indicated by a number following the name. They are used as SURFACTANTS, dispersing agents, solvents, ointment and suppository bases, vehicles, and tablet excipients. Some specific groups are NONOXYNOLS, OCTOXYNOLS, and POLOXAMERS. .
