Ethylene Glycol

ethylene glycolEthylene glycol is a colorless, odorless viscous liquid with a sweet taste.  It is commonly used for antifreeze purposes and in the polyester fiber manufacturing industry, as a raw material.

A little bit of fun history, ethylene glycol is rumored to have first been produced in 1859 by a French chemist by the name of Charles-Adolph Wurtz.  In 1925 the first large commercial plant was opened in West Virginia.

Ethylene glycol is a common part of our everyday lives, it is part of many things we take for granted, such as air conditioning, cars and even computers.  It is part of the de-icing fluids and even part of preserving organs.

Many people are aware of the poisonous effect, anti-freeze poisoning is something many parents are warned about.  Due to the sweet taste it is a chemical that can easily attract animals and children.  The toxicity first affects the central nervous system, then the heart and kidneys.  If untreated, poisoning can be fatal.
