Methanol, also known as methyl alcohol, wood alcohol, wood naphtha or wood spirits, is a chemical with the formula CH3OH (often abbreviated MeOH). Methanol acquired the name "wood alcohol" because it was once produced chiefly as a byproduct of the destructive distillation of wood. Modern methanol is produced in a catalytic industrial process directly from carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen.  The boiling point of methanol is 64.7 °C.


Methanol, also known as wood alcohol, is a colorless and flammable liquid that has many industrial and commercial uses. Here are some common uses of methanol:

  1. Fuel: Methanol is used as a fuel in some racing cars, boats, and other vehicles. It can also be used as a fuel additive to increase the octane rating of gasoline/petrol.
  2. Solvent: Methanol is a versatile solvent that is used in the production of various chemicals, including formaldehyde, acetic acid, and methyl methacrylate. It is also used as a solvent in the production of pharmaceuticals, dyes, and paints.
  3. Antifreeze: Methanol is used as an antifreeze agent in automotive cooling systems and windshield washer fluid.
  4. Sterilization: Methanol can be used as a sterilizing agent for medical equipment and in laboratory settings.
  5. Cleaning agent: Methanol is a useful cleaning agent for removing grease, oil, and other contaminants from machinery and surfaces.
  6. Energy storage: Methanol can be used as an energy storage medium in fuel cells and other energy storage systems.
  7. Personal care products: Methanol is used as a denaturant in the production of some personal care products, such as hair care products and lotions.

It is important to handle methanol with care, as it is a toxic substance that can cause serious health effects if ingested or inhaled. Proper safety precautions should always be taken when working with this chemical.

    Good quality product, burns nice and cool. Currently use it in my water/meth setup for over a year now, and appears to be working well. Easy purchase and fast delivery. Wish there was a recycling scheme for the left over bottles though.
