Monoethylene Glycol – MEG
Molecular formula C2H6O2
In household uses, Monoethylene Glycol is also a popular coolant liquid in many equipment such as air conditioning. However it is more commonly used in antifreeze formulations. It can prevent the formulation of ice crystals because it interferes with hydrogen bonds. This makes it difficult for the water molecules to freeze. Pure Monoethylene Glycol freezes at -12°C, so it greatly lowers the freezing point of water when it is added.
What is Mono Ethylene Glycol?
Monoethylene Glycol (also known as MEG) is a clear, colourless, virtually odourless, and slightly viscous liquid. It is miscible with water, alcohols and many organic compounds, it has the formula C2H6O2. It is the most important of the commercially available ethylene glycols as it has many industrial applications.
What can i use MEG for?

Humidifying and plasticizing
Coupling printing inks
Solvent for dyes in textile and leather finishing
General purpose cleaners
Preservative, rust remover and disinfectant
