About Triethylene Glycol

Triethylene glycol is well established as a relatively mild disinfectant toward a variety of bacteria, influenza A viruses and spores of Penicillium notatum fungi. Triethylene glycol (TEG) may prove to be a potent weapon against future influenza epidemics and pandemics. Triethylene glycol (TEG) is a colorless, viscous liquid with a slight odor. It is non-flammable, mildly toxic, and considered non-hazardous

It is used in air sanitizer products, such as OUST® air sanitizer products or "Clean and Pure". When aerosolized triethylene glycol acts as a disinfectant. The commercially successful OUST® air sanitizer products utilize a mixture that contains about 6 wt % TEG. Non-aerosol applications of TEG for disinfecting air are also developed. Vaporizing triethylene glycol in hospital wards housing streptococcal carriers reduces the number of air-borne beta hemolytic streptococci. Triethylene glycol (TEG) is a relatively new addition to the long list of microbicidal substances with cytostatic or anticancer and sleep-inducing activities.

Triethylene Glycol is a fragrance ingredient and viscosity decreasing agent in cosmetic formulations, with a maximum concentration of use of 0.08% in skin-cleansing products

Triethylene Glycol Chemical Properties And Reference Resources

Triethylene Glycol Uses

Triethylene glycol is used as a dehydrating agent for natural gas; a solvent and lubricant in textile dyeing and printing; a plasticizer; a raw material for the production of polyester resins and polyols; a humectant; a constituent of hydraulic fluids; a selective solvent for aromatics.

It is used as a plasticizer for vinyl polymers. It is also used in air sanitizer products, such as "Oust" or "Clean and Pure". When aerosolized it acts as a disinfectant. Read more here. Triethylene Glycol is an ingredient in Lysol Neutra Air. Lysol Neutra Air sanitizing spray cleans your air of bacteria and their odors. Kills 99.9% of bacteria. Unlike other air fresheners that only mask odors, this product eliminates tough odors such as smoke, food, mold, mildew, bathroom and pet odors.

Using Triethylene Glycol To Inactivate Viruses On Surfaces 

Surfaces in congregate settings, such as vehicles used for mass transportation, can become contaminated with infectious microorganisms and facilitate disease transmission. Vapor concentrations of 2 ppm TEG can provide effective surface disinfection.  Read more here.

Triethylene Glycol Solubility

This liquid is miscible with water, and at a pressure of 101.325 kPa has a boiling point of 286.5 degrees Celsius and a freezing point of -7 degrees C. It is also soluble in ethanol, acetone, acetic acid, glycerine, pyridine, aldehydes; slightly soluble in diethyl ether; and insoluble in oil, fat and most hydrocarbons. Read more here.

Information About Triethylene Glycol From Wikpedia

Triethylene glycol, TEG, or triglycol is a colorless odorless viscous liquid with molecular formula HOCH2CH2OCH2CH2OCH2CH2OH. It is used as a plasticizer for vinyl polymers. It is also used in air sanitizer products, such as "Oust" or "Clean and Pure". When aerosolized it acts as a disinfectant. Glycols are also used as liquid desiccants for natural gas and in air conditioning systems. It is an additive for hydraulic fluids and brake fluids and is used as a base for "smoke machine" fluid in the entertainment industry. Triethylene glycol is a member of a homologous series of dihydroxy alcohols. It is a colorless, odorless and stable liquid with high viscosity and a high boiling point. Apart from its use as a raw material in the manufacture and synthesis of other products, TEG is known for its hygroscopic quality and its ability to dehumidify fluids. This liquid is miscible with water, and at a pressure of 101.325 kPa has a boiling point of 286.5 degrees Celsius and a freezing point of -7 degrees C. It is also soluble in ethanol, acetone, acetic acid, glycerine, pyridine, aldehydes; slightly soluble in diethyl ether; and insoluble in oil, fat and most hydrocarbons. TEG is prepared commercially as a co-product of the oxidation of ethylene at high temperature in the presence of silver oxide catalyst, followed by hydration of ethylene oxide to yield mono(one)-, di(two)-, tri(three)- and tetraethylene glycols. TEG is used by the oil and gas industry to "dehydrate" natural gas. It may also be used to dehydrate other gases, including CO2, H2S, and other oxygenated gases. It is necessary to dry natural gas to a certain point, as humidity in natural gas can cause pipelines to freeze, and create other problems for end users of the natural gas. Triethylene glycol is placed into contact with natural gas, and strips the water out of the gas. Triethylene glycol is heated to a high temperature and put through a condensing system, which removes the water as waste and reclaims the TEG for continuous reuse within the system. The waste TEG produced by this process has been found to contain enough benzene to be classified as hazardous waste (benzene concentration greater than 0.5 mg/L). Triethylene glycol is well established as a relatively mild disinfectant toward a variety of bacteria, influenza A viruses and spores of Penicillium notatum fungi. However, its exceptionally low toxicity, broad materials compatibility, and low odor combined with its antimicrobial properties indicates that it approaches the ideal for air disinfection purposes in occupied spaces. Much of the scientific work with triethylene glycol was done in the 1940s and 1950s, however that work has ably demonstrated the antimicrobial activity against airborne, solution suspension, and surface bound microbes. The ability of triethylene glycol to inactivate Streptococcus pneumoniae (original citation: pneumococcus Type I), Streptococcus pyogenes (original citation: Beta hemolytic streptococcus group A) and Influenza A virus in the air was first reported in 1943. Since the first report the following microorganisms have been reported in the literature to be inactivated in the air: Penicillium notatum spores, Chlamydophila psittaci (original citation: meningopneumonitis virus strain Cal 10 and psittacosis virus strain 6BC), Group C streptococcus, type 1 pneumococcus, Staphylococcus albus,Escherichia coli, and Serratia marcescens Bizio (ATCC 274). Solutions of triethylene glycol are known to be antimicrobial toward suspensions of Penicillium notatum spores, Streptococcus pyogenes (original citation: Beta hemolytic streptococcus Group A ), Streptococcus pneumoniae (original citation: pneumococcus Type I), Streptococcus viridans, and Mycobacterium bovis (original citation: tubercle bacilli Ravenel bovine-type). Further, the inactivation of H1N1 influenza A virus on surfaces has been demonstrated. The latter investigation suggests that triethylene glycol may prove to be a potent weapon against future influenza epidemics and pandemics. Read more here.

Triethylene Glycol For Skin

Triethylene Glycol is a fragrance ingredient and viscosity decreasing agent in cosmetic formulations, with a maximum concentration of use of 0.08% in skin-cleansing products. Triethylene Glycol was not irritating to the skin of rabbits and produced only minimal injury to the eye. Read more here.

Triethylene Glycol In Hospitals And Healthcare Facilities

Triethylene Glycol could help fight hospital-acquired infections. A team of researchers have developed a device that diffuses potent disinfectants for airborne delivery. The device works on a range of disinfectants that have never been atomized before, such as Triethylene glycol, or TEG. The team used the device to atomize disinfectants onto environmental surfaces contaminated with bacteria and showed that it eliminated 100 percent of bacteria that commonly cause hospital-acquired infections.

Triethylene Glycol Dehydration

Usually a triethylene glycol dehydration unit, circulating a highly concentrated solution of TEG, is used to absorb O in a contactor (absorber). The regeneration of TEG by removal of water gained from natural gas is performed in a regeneration unit where heat is provided to remove the absorbed water. Read more here.

Triethylene Glycol Hazards

Very hazardous in case of eye contact (irritant), of ingestion. Slightly hazardous in case of inhalation. Inflammation of the eye is characterized by redness, watering, and itching. Potential Chronic Health Effects: Very hazardous in case of eye contact (irritant). Read more here.
