Applications

It is used as an antiseptic, a solvent, a fuel, and, due to its low freezing point, the active fluid in post-mercury thermometers. It is used as an antitussive agent, fuel additive, rocket fuel, used to dissolve many water-insoluble medications. Ethanol kills organisms by denaturing their proteins and dissolving their lipids and is effective against most bacteria and fungi, and many viruses.

Notes

Store away from strong oxidizing agents, strong acids.
