Methanol (a.k.a. Methyl Alcohol, Wood Alcohol) is a colorless liquid at ambient temperatures with a mild, characteristic alcohol odor and is one of the most important chemical raw materials. Methanol was originally called wood alcohol because it was first obtained from the destructive distillation of wood. Currently, more than 95% of commercial methanol is synthetically produced from synthesis gas, or syngas, which is a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide.
