General description

Price includes Federal Tax.
Pure ethyl alcohol is a non-denatured 200proof ethanol. 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. Spectrophotometric grade solvent is of high purity with low UV absorption.

Application

Pure ethyl alcohol (Ethanol) has been used to prepare:
  • Ethanol solution for the synthesis of Ga-68 DOTATATE [DOTA-(Tyr3)-octreotate (where DOTA = 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclo- dodecane-1,4,7,10-tetraacetic acid)] by an automated synthesis system.
  • Aristolochic acid stock solution for the spectrophotometric analysis.
  • Core silica particles of nanoshells by a modified Stöber method.
  • Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) solution in combination with water for synthesizing PVP ultrafine fibers by solution (air-) blowing method.

Certificate of Analysis

Certificate of Origin

  1. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  2. Who do I contact about larger solvent volume needs?

    Email us at labessentials@sial.com or visit Sigma-Aldrich Fine Chemicals for development and manufacturing-scale inquiries: safcglobal@sial.com

  3. How do I know what packaging options are available for a solvent?

    The Solvent Center gives you the ability to review all the specifications associated with our solvent packaging. This includes physical dimensions, closure types, dispensing methods, UN/DOT Rating as well as solvent compatibility. Visit the Solvent Center.

  4. Who do I contact if I need a solvent blend, which you do not carry?

    Email us at labessentials@sial.com. For a complete listing of all our Solvent blends, visit the Solvent Center

  5. Which solvent grade should I be using for my application?

    Sigma-Aldrich Solvent Applications Table gives a guideline to common applications and the appropriate solvent grades.  Visit: Solvents

  6. What is 190 proof and 200 proof ethanol?

    All non-denatured ethanol products have a proof associated with the product description. The proof is a measure of the water content of the ethanol portion of the product. The proof is calculated as two times (2 x) the actual ethanol concentration by volume.

  7. How do I find price and availability?

    There are several ways to find pricing and availability for our products. Once you log onto our website, you will find the price and availability displayed on the product detail page. You can contact any of our Customer Sales and Service offices to receive a quote.  USA customers:  1-800-325-3010 or view local office numbers.
