Ethanol (denatured), a primary alcohol, is a constituent of hairspray, disinfectants and cosmetics. It can be synthesized either from molasses by fermentation or by hydration of ethylene. It is made non-consumable by the addition of denaturants.
The product is denatured ethyl alcohol and it contains following as denaturant:
Ethanol, a primary alcohol is an important raw material for the synthesis of various compounds. It can be synthesized either from molasses by fermentation or by hydration of ethylene. It acts as a hydrogen source and reaction medium during the transfer hydrogenation of carbonyl compounds in the presence of sodium hydroxide. The impact of ethanol/water fumigation on the performance of diesel engines has been studied. Denatured alcohol is also referred to as industrial methylated spirit.
