Example of using our Alcohols Use of alcohols in disinfectants
Alcohols are organic chemical compounds that have one or more hydroxy groups (-O-H) attached to different aliphatic carbon atoms.
The alcohols most commonly used in industry are ethanol, methanol, isopropanol and glycerin. Alcohols are used in the production of cleaning agents, cosmetic products, fuels, medicines, textiles and many other products.
Areas of application
Alcohols are very often used as solvents, especially ethanol, which is relatively safe to use for dissolving many water-insoluble compounds.Just like ethanol, methanol is a frequently used solvent, especially for the synthesis of other chemical compounds such as methanal (formaldehyde), acetic acid, or fatty acid methyl ester.
Alcohols are also used as a substitute for fossil fuels. The aim is to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels through the use of bio-alcohol and thus counteract the increasing air pollution.
