Ethyl Alcohol
Bio-Ethanol
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 byproduct 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 uses widened in modern times, being first used fuel in 1850 and currently, ethanol can is employed as a versatile chemical building block for its unique combination of properties.
