Glycol, also called diol, is a chemical compound with many subcategories. It’s part of the organic compounds that belong to the alcohol family.
The simplest member of the class is ethylene glycol, a popular antifreeze due to its heat transfer properties.
It could be used in automobile systems, as a coolant in automotive radiators, and as antifreeze in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning). Additionally, ethylene glycol could be used as an ingredient in paint solvents and printing inks. It is also used as a reagent in making alkyd resins, explosives, polyesters, and synthetic waxes.
Another popular glycol is Propylene glycol, also known as 1,2-propanediol. It works as a moisture-retaining agent, preservative, and solvent. It is not toxic and can be used in cosmetics, foods, and hygiene products.
