                        Methanol (methyl alcohol)

                        We are your source for methanol

                        Methanol, also known as methyl alcohol or wood alcohol is a colorless liquid with a low boiling point and a fairly volatile profile. Soluble in water, methanol finds use as an intermediate in chemical synthesis, as an extraction agent to remove water from automotive and aviation fuels and as a solvent for paint, plastics and common household cleaners. Its economic and environmental profile has made it an increasingly popular choice in recent years for fuel and wastewater treatment.
