About Absolute Ethanol

Absolute Ethanol is also known as Pure Alcohol, Ethanol Absolute, Ethanol, Ethyl Alcohol and simply Alcohol.  It is the alcoholic element of intoxicating drinks and as such, duty must be paid to the government when purchasing Absolute Ethanol; this is usually included in the price.  However, Absolute Ethanol itself is not intended for human consumption.

Ingestion of Absolute Ethanol can cause familiar symptoms of ‘drunkeness’ including headache, nausea and vomiting.  It can also cause serious liver damage when ingested over a long time. Ethanol depresses the central nervous system and exposure can result in intoxication with psychoactive effects.

Absolute Ethanol is a solvent and highly flammable.  It should be stored away from combustible materials in a cool, dry area, in its original container and with the lid tightly closed.  Pure Ethanol irritates the eyes and skin.

Uses Of Ethanol

Absolute Ethanol is used for analytical work in laboratories such as in ultra-violet spectroscopy, where the use of denatured ethanol or industrial methylated spirits would be in appropriate.  Absolute Ethanol is also used as a solvent, as a fuel and in thermometers.

In the 1800’s Ethanol was used to fuel lamps in the USA but taxes levied on it during the Civil War led to the cessation of this use.  In the early 1900’s the taxes were abolished and the first Model T Ford motor car was designed to run on Ethanol until the Prohibition put an end to its use for this purpose.
