What is Ethyl Alcohol?
Ethyl alcohol, most popularly known as ethanol, is a highly flammable and colourless liquid which is used as a solvent in a variety of industries.
The chemical formula for ethyl alcohol is C2H6O, and it is used as:
- An antiseptic in the medical and cosmetic industry
- An antidote to methanol and ethylene glycol poisoning
- A medicinal solvent to dissolve water-insoluble medications
- Engine fuel and a fuel additive (its largest single use)
- A precursor for other organic compounds such as ethyl halides
- A general-purpose solvent across many industries
- A low-temperature liquid used in laboratory cooling baths
These are just a few applications of ethanol. It is also notoriously used recreationally and is even one of the most popular psychoactive drugs available. When consumed in this way, it acts as a central nervous system depressant.
People who buy ethyl alcohol should thoroughly familiarise themselves with its potential hazards by reading the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) supplied with the material. Containers of ethyl alcohol should be stored away from sources of ignition and combustible materials. Containers of ethyl alcohol should be kept away from children and animals.
