Ethanol or Ethyl Alcohol is probably the most used chemical in any life science or chemistry laboratory. The industrial production of alcohol can be from carbon dioxide, lipids or ethylene. Its application is diverse and plenty. The most important one is its use as an organic solvent like in the precipitation of nucleic acid (DNA and RNA). The most common application of ethanol would be its use as an antiseptic. It can denature the microbial proteins and can serve as antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal. It is used as a hand sanitizer, in the cleaning of the working bench, lab tools made of metal, plastic, glass and sometimes even to store zoological samples in a glass bottle for preservation. Because of its antiseptic and disinfecting properties, it also finds its application in hospitals and medical clinics.
Based on its purity, alcohol is available as different grades. A fuel grade alcohol is the crudest form whereas industrial grade is purer. The one synthesized for molecular biology experiments is even purer and cannot be used for purposes like lab cleaning. It is highly volatile & flammable and requires secured storage and careful handling.
