Poly(ethylene oxide), or as it is frequently denoted in the literature, poly-(ethylene glycol) (PEG), is a nonionic, water-soluble polymer widely used for stabilizing colloids in food and paints and in formulating pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. The reason for the extensive use of this polymer is that it acts as a dispersant and yet is inert, e.g., it does not interfere adversely with other functional ingredients in the dispersion.
