Ethanol (a.k.a. Ethyl Alcohol, Bio-Ethanol, EtOH) is one of the simplest alcohols with the molecular formula C2H5OH. It is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid, soluble in water and in most organic compounds. The alcohol can be found naturally in many sources, as it is the by-product of anaerobic sugar fermentation. Ethanol is considered to be one of the oldest human food products, since fermented beer was consumed as early as 3000 B.C. Its use has widened in modern times, being the first used fuel in 1850, and currently ethanol can be employed as a versatile chemical building block due to its unique combination of properties.
