Ethylene oxide/ethylene glycols
When we apply the brake or clutch in our car, wash our clothes, or paint our homes, we are dependent on ethylene oxide and its derivatives. Bottles for carbonated soft drinks and beer, polyester fabrics, x-ray film and antifreeze are also some of the many products derived from this versatile group of chemicals.
