Ethanol, anhydrous, reagent contains only ethanol and denaturants, no water. The ethanol includes the denaturants and, therefore, is not 100% pure ethanol. The percentage of denaturants in the ethanol varies, but usually accounts for 10% of the solution.
All our ethanol products are denatured. Denatured means that poisons have been added to the ethanol to make it undrinkable. The federal government exempts sales of denatured alcohol from beverage taxes. The poisons are chosen such that they cannot easily be distilled or otherwise removed from the ethanol to make it drinkable.
Reagent GradeHigh purity. Often equal to purity standards set by the American Chemical Society (ACS). Use for quantitative analysis.
