PostSubject: The Safty of Ethanol(CAS No:64-17-5) Tue Aug 02, 2011 2:15 pm

Ethanol, also known as alcohol, is a colourless, flammable, volatile liquid with a strong alcoholic odor. It is a two carbon straight chain alcohol and a high octane, clean burning fuel. Ethanol can dissolve many organic compounds and some inorganic compounds. Using the common organic chemistry notation of representing the ethyl group (C2H5) with Et, Ethanol is often abbreviated as EtOH. As it is a primary alcohol, it has many kinds of reaction, such as: ester formation, dehydration, combustion, acid-base chemistry, halogenation, and oxidation.

Ethanol is irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin. It has possible risk of irreversible effects through inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed. The symptoms of ingestion are nausea, vomiting and intoxication. It can cause serious liver damage by long-term use of ingestion. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Besides, in case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately (show label where possible)
