Product Detail

Ethanol is an organic compound, the structural formula is CH3CH2OH or C2H5OH, the molecular formula is C2H6O, commonly known as alcohol. Ethanol at room temperature and pressure is a volatile colorless transparent liquid, low toxicity, pure liquid can not be directly drunk. The aqueous solution of ethanol has a wine-like smell, and slightly pungent, sweet taste. Ethanol is flammable and its vapor can form an explosive mixture with air. Ethanol can be miscible with water in any ratio, and can be miscible with chloroform, ether, methanol, acetone and most other organic solvents.
