Ethylene glycol, also known as monoethylene glycol or MEG, is an odorless, colorless, hygroscopic liquid. Not only does it exhibit low volatility and low viscosity, but it is also fully miscible in water and many other organic liquids. Because of the reactivity of the hydroxyl group and the high degree of solubility, ethylene glycol provides a broad range of applications. Besides serving as an intermediate to chemical synthesis, it can produce resins, act as a solvent, and lower the freezing point of water, lending its efficacy as an anti-freeze.
