There is no presently existing page in Wikipedia about Ethlyne Glycol! Maybe because I typed in "Ethlyne Glycol".What did you type to get the answers,Borek?

Hey, what about di-ethylene glycol and tri-ethylene glycol? What is the difference between them? Are they just stronger ethylene glycols?

C'mon Borek let's have a nice discussion here.Let alone Wikipedia.Of course, your suggestion to visit Wikipedia is a very nice one, no doubt, but let's have discussion here.

Thanks for the correct spelling, Borek!

What exactly are you asking about diethylene and triethylene glycol? Are you unsure about the structures?
