General description

Prices include Federal Tax.
The product 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.[05] The impact of ethanol/water fumigation on the performance of diesel engines has been studied.[06]

Application

Pure ethyl alcohol has been used for the homogenization of tissue samples.[74]
