Monoethylene Glycol

Monoethylene Glycol is the simplest chemical compound in the glycol family. Ethylene glycol is commonly used as an antifreeze in automotive coolant.


Monoethylene glycol

Monoethylene glycol (MEG) is a widely used chemical compound, primarily in the chemical and petrochemical industry.


  • Monoethylene glycol is a colorless, odorless, and viscous liquid.
  • It is hygroscopic, meaning it has the ability to absorb moisture from the air.
  • It has a relatively low freezing point, making it useful as an antifreeze agent.


  • Antifreeze: MEG is extensively used as an antifreeze in engine cooling systems, heating systems, and industrial cooling systems.
  • Textile industry: It is used in the production of synthetic fibers such as polyester and in other textile applications.
  • Plastic industry: MEG is a significant precursor in the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), used in plastic bottles and other packaging.
  • Chemical industry: It is used as a solvent in certain chemical applications.


  • Monoethylene glycol is toxic if ingested. Precautions should be taken to avoid accidental ingestion.
  • It can cause skin and eye irritations. The use of personal protective equipment, such as gloves and safety goggles, is recommended during handling.
  • Due to its ability to absorb moisture, it should be stored in tightly closed containers to prevent water contamination.
