Laboratory determination of glycol by GC-MS

You are looking to measure the glycol in your industrial products...

Glycol is a chemical compound also called dialcohol, intermediate between alcohol and glycerine by its chemical properties but also by its physical properties. Glycol is a colorless, odorless, slightly viscous, very hygroscopic liquid, with a slightly sweet taste, miscible with water in all proportions.

One of its main characteristics is that it is used as an antifreeze and component of polyester fibers (Tergal), or resins and films, such as polyester. Besides glycol, polyglycols are also used as plasticizers for plastics, as drying agents for gases or as humectants (tobacco, cork), solvents, extraction agents, etc.

Glycol is classified as a toxic product for humans. It is therefore necessary for industries using this chemical product to have recourse to controls to check whether glycol residues are present in their finished products.
