Methyl, ethyl, and isopropyl alcohols work well in dry ice diffusion cloud
chambers,and I hear that ethylene glycol works in a heated cloud chamber. Why
can't water be made to work well? What are the criteria for a usuable working
fluid? Is there a good theory on this or were these fluids discovered by trial
