Would it affect the chemical formula?
I have an unopened bottle and it was delivered frozen. I think it's fine. I read this somewhere:

"1,4-butanediol is normally a liquid, but it has a very high freezing point. It will begin to freeze at 20.1 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit). At temperatures below this, it will turn first into a gelatinous mass, and then harder at lower temperatures. If your 1,4-butanediol has been stored in a cool environment, this is probably what happened to it. Letting it warm up should thaw it back to a liquid. As long as it has been stored in an air tight container and not exposed to extreme heat or cold, it's unlikely that it has broken down into anything else."
