Any substance that lowers the freezing point of water, protecting a system from the ill effects of freezing. In automobile cooling systems, mixing water with ethylene glycol or propylene glycol can lower its freezing point to 0° F (-17.8° C) and does not damage radiators. Additives to prevent freezing of water in gasoline (e.g., Drygas) usually contain methanol or isopropanol. Organisms that must survive freezing temperatures use various chemicals: glycerol or dimethyl sulfoxide in insects, glycerol or trehalose in other invertebrates (nematodes, rotifers), and proteins in antarctic fishes.
