In Chemistry, Ethanol is any chemical compound in which one hydroxyl group (–OH) that is bound to carbon has one alkyl. Ethanol is one of the most important chemical compounds and participates in various reactions and many chemical compounds are created from it.

Ethanol is a colorless and volatile fluid and has a strong odor which is resulted from the fermentation of sugar.

Hydrated Ethanol with a 96.5% Degree of Purity

This substance is produced through the fermentation of the sugar available in sugarcane and beetroot molasses in an anaerobic environment with controlled temperature and PH by Saccharomyces cerevisiae. During the next stage, this alcoholic molasses fluid is delivered to related distillation columns for the separation of the product and finally is removed from the system with a 96.5% degree and delivered to be used in related industries. The production line of the company, equipped with all necessary equipments and installations, extracts all ethanol impurity from the main product (%96.5 Ethanol). Besides producing medical ethanol as the main product, two other products, industrial ethanol and fusel oil, are also produced.

Notes(s) Pharmaco’s Specific Gravity, Relative Density, Assay and Proof is more stringent than those listed in their respective monographs (USP/EP/BP) In order to harmonize these specifications
