  • Interesting fact: Vaccines contain formaldehyde, ethylene glycol (antifreeze), phenol (disinfectant / pesticide), and aluminum.
    • n Glycol (Chem) A thick, colorless liquid, C2H4(OH)2, of a sweetish taste, produced artificially from certain ethylene compounds. It is a diacid alcohol, intermediate between ordinary ethyl alcohol and glycerin.

    • n glycol The general name of a class of compounds intermediate in their properties and chemical relations between alcohol and glycerol, or the bodies of which these are the types. An alcohol contains but one hydroxyl group, OH, as C2H5OH, or ethyl alcohol; a glycol contains two hydroxyl groups united to different carbon atoms, as C2H4(OH)2, ethyl glycol; a glycerol contains three hydroxyl groups united to three carbon atoms, as C3H5(OH)3. Ethyl glycol is a liquid, inodorous, of a sweetish taste, and miscible with water and alcohol.
