Review of Polyethylene Glycol Production in the CIS

     Polyethylene glycols are water-soluble nonionic oxygen-containing high-molecular ethylene oxide polymers having two terminal hydroxyl groups. They are available in a broad range of molecular weight (MW) grades, from thick liquids (MW<400) to waxy substances (MW 200-2000) and crystalline thermoplastic polymers (MW>2000). Traditionally, the term “polyethylene glycol”...
