About Formalin. Formaldehyde (a.k.a. Methanal) is an organic compound, the simplest aldehyde in existence. Formaldehyde is a colorless gas, with strong pungent odor. It was first discovered in 1859, however, it began being industrially produced in the beginning of the twentieth century. For its relatively low cost, wide use in chemical reactions, as well as elevated purity, formaldehyde has become one of the world’s most important research and industrial chemicals.
