    Hello Fathi,

    I am writing this to discuss the production of MEG with you. I would also suggest that you focus a little on additional research to ensure that your communication with your professor is clear and not one-sided.
    The process of producing MEG from ethylene glycol involves two steps.
    The first step is the carbonylation reaction to form ethylene carboxylate.
    The second step is the hydrolysis reaction to form MEG.
    This is one way to go ahead and synthesize MEG. There are many other ways to do it as well. I would suggest going with what makes you comfortable.
    The reaction PFD is readily available online after doing further research.
    The introduction to this would have to include the need/demand for MEG and it's supply. It would also need to mention the applications of MEG such as anti-freeze, it's use in making PET bottles and fibres.
    I do hope that this was helpful and that you communicate well with your professor and that your professor is stisfied with your work.

    Kind regards,
