Ethylene Glycol (a.k.a. Monoethylene Glycol, MEG) is an organic compound, more specifically a diol (a chemical compound that contains two hydroxyl groups). It is a colorless, practically odorless, low viscosity, hygroscopic liquid at room temperature. It is in fact the simplest diol and a major chemical commodity, widely employed in the production of PET bottle-grade resins and polyesters fibers. Like other glycols, Ethylene Glycol undergoes reactions common to monohydric alcohols forming esters, acetals, ethers, and similar products.
