Short Description

MEG is less volatile and 50% more hygroscopic than glycerin at room temperature. It has moisturizing power. Miscible with water, small amounts of fatty alcohols, glycerin, acetic acid, acetone, ketones, aldehydes, pyridines, and many organic compounds. It is slightly soluble in ether and practically insoluble in benzene, chlorinated hydrocarbons, petroleum ether and oil. Gums, cellulose acetate, heavy vegetable and petroleum oils will not dissolve. The lower the freezing point and the higher the boiling point, the wider the range of use.
