Modification to Figure[edit]

Since the point of the synthetic figure (File:(s)-Propanediol_from_D-Mannitol.png) is that the product can be made as a single enantiomer, stereochemistry should be added to the final three structures in the scheme. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maxfield1138 (talkcontribs) 20:57, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Use in Paintballs[edit]

Polyethylene Glycol is the main ingredient in paintballs, not Propylene Glycol. http://www.severepaintball.com/pdf/msds.pdf (link to a pdf for the MSDS for a certain brand of paintballs) http://paintball.about.com/b/a/079179.htm (about.com article that mentions polyethylene glycol as the main ingredient)

Please create a non-technical site[edit]

Someone needs to create a non-technical version of Wikipedia. This page is useless for non-technical people. Propylene glycol is used in many flavorings (extracts or whatever) yet the "Applications" section in particular is highly technical. It would help to be able to understand why Propylene glycol is used in many flavorings and we need a non-technical site for that. Or maybe people should stop trying to show off how much they know and instead try to help people to understand technical things such as Propylene glycol. Sam Tomato (talk) 22:02, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

There is a Simple English Wikipedia at https://simple.wikipedia.org. If you feel that this article is to complicated, you might consider tagging the article as being too technical.173.228.123.21 (talk) 22:31, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
The topic is inherently technical. If you want to start a simpler version of the article, the Simple English Wikipedia is the place for it, and you are welcome to create a simplfied article there. Reify-tech (talk) 23:47, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Used in Oil Dispersant[edit]

Propolyne Glycol is the main ingredient used in COREXIT 9500, for anyone that is interested. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:558:6011:61:5CAE:B261:8C88:C9E7 (talk) 22:59, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
