    Synonyms: ethanol, grain alcohol, fermentation alcohol, alcohol, methylcarbinol, absolute alcohol, absolute ethanol, anhydrous alcohol, alcohol dehydrated, algrain, anhydrol, Cologne spirit, duplicating fluid 100C, ethyl hydrate, ethyl hydroxide, jaysol, jaysol s, molasses alcohol, potato alcohol, sekundasprit, spirits of wine, spirit, synasol, tecsol
    Molecular C2H5OH
    CAS No: 64-17-5
    EC No: 200-578-6
    Annex I Index No: 603-002-00-5

Physical data

    Appearance: colourless liquid
    Melting point: -144 C
    Boiling point: 78 C
    Specific gravity: 0.789
    Vapour pressure: 1.59
    Flash point: 14 C (closed cup)
    Explosion limits: 3.3% - 24.5%
    Autoignition temperature: 363 C
    Water solubility: miscible in all proportions


    Stable. Substances to be avoided include strong oxidizing agents, peroxides, acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides, alkali metals, ammonia, moisture. Forms explosive mixtures with air. Hygroscopic.


    Causes skin and eye irritation. Ingestion can cause nausea, vomitting and inebriation; chronic use can cause serious liver damage. Note that "absolute" alcohol, which is close to 100% ethanol, may nevertheless contain traces of 2-propanol, together with methanol or benzene. The latter two are very toxic, while "denatured" alcohol has substances added to it which make it unpleasant and possibly hazardous to consume. Typical OEL 1000 mg/m3.
