Methanol

Also known as methyl alcohol, wood alcohol, wood naphtha or wood spirits, is a chemical with the formula CH3OH (often abbreviated MeOH). It is a light, volatile, colorless, flammable liquid with a distinctive odor very similar to that of ethanol. At room temperature, it is a polar liquid, and is used as an antifreeze, solvent, fuel, and as a denaturant for ethanol.

Uses

  • The largest use is making other chemicals. It is converted to formaldehyde, and from there into products as diverse as plastics, plywood, paints, explosives, and permanent press textile.
  • Other chemical derivatives of methanol include dimethyl ether, which has replaced chlorofluorocarbons as an aerosol spray propellant, and acetic acid. Dimethyl ether (DME) also can be blended with liquified petroleum gas (LPG) for home heating and cooking, and can be used as a diesel replacement for fuel.
