Methanol (CH3OH)

Methanol, also known as methyl alcohol, is a light, volatile, colorless, and flammable liquid with a distinctive odor, and its molecular formula is CH3OH. It is the simplest alcohol consisting of a methyl group linked to a hydroxyl group. Methanol earned the nickname ‘wood alcohol’ due to its historical production method, which involved primarily extracting it through the destructive distillation of wood. It is widely used as a solvent in the manufacturing of various products.

We supply chemicals in various global markets such as the Asia, USA, Europe, Africa, and Middle East. To cater to the growing domestic demands, we also import and supplies from other global producers.

Our company manufactures a full range of chemicals, including high-quality methanol produced through a method of steam reforming of natural gas. In this process, natural gas and steam are superheated in the presence of a catalyst, breaking them down into a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide (syngas). This syngas is then further converted into methanol in a separate reaction using State of the art technology from ICI/Davy McKee, UK guarantees consistent high purity methanol meeting the requirements of ASTM D 1152 1989 and IS 517:1986, following an eco-friendly purification process at our advanced manufacturing plant. We provide Methanol in standard order quantities of 0.8 kg, 20 kg, 160 kg, and can be customized for bulk orders.

We also provide Pharmaceutical Grade Methanol, which ensure the precision required in the production of various medications. This Grade contribute to the safety and efficacy of the final medicinal products. Our Pharmaceutical Grade Methanol is certified by pharmacopeia such as the USP, IP, and BP. Our expert scientists and engineers adhere strictly to all of their stringent international standards while producing methanol.

Usage: Methanol is used as a raw material to manufacture Formaldehyde, Acetic Acid, Methyl Tertiary-Butyl Ether, Dimethyl Ether, Methyl Methacrylate, and Olefins. It is used as a Solvent to manufacture paint, ink, and resin. Additionally, Methanol is used to make biodiesel, which is a cleaner fuel for vehicles. It helps reduce pollution and is an eco-friendly alternative to gasoline, making it better for the environment and our health.

Handle with Care: Methanol (CH3OH) is toxic and can cause serious health effects if ingested, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. Please take precautions before handling.
