Bulk Purchase Ethanol

Ethanol is a multifaceted solvent that mixes without separation in water and other organic solvents including acetic acid, acetone, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, diethyl ether, ethylene glycol, glycerol, nitromethane, pyridine, and toluene.

Crude ethanol production produces many byproducts including aldehydes, ketones, fatty acids, and esters. Residuals produce shortcomings that reduce potency, flavor, taste, and instrumentation accuracy. Safe and repeatable use requires scrutiny of ethanol grades, proof, and purity. During microbiological analysis, research, or tetrahydrocannabinol extraction, a higher alcohol concentration eliminates water content during filtration, evaporation, recrystallization, decarboxylation, or other processes.

Ethanol Grades Explained Guide to Ethanol Grades

This article covers the unique characteristics of high purity ethanol for commercial distillation and laboratory techniques. We’ll outline methods that improve batch efficiency, reduce terpene loss, and minimize residual solvents.

Read about ethanol use for rotary evaporator distillation including temperature, parts, procedures, and methods. Compare prices for cold-finger rotary evaporators for ethanol extraction, winterization, and distillation.

We offer both grain and synthetic grades of alcohol products. Various alcohols, even when the the molecule is identical, present unique contamination challenges depending on the use. One contaminant might be problematic for some tasks, yet inert for others. A feasible and cost effective solution accounts for availability, quantity discounts, hazardous transport, and state taxes. We help you meet the specific needs of your application and outline a precise alcohol grade to meet your needs.

Ethanol Proofs

Absolute Ethanol (200 Proof)
Absolute ethanol achieves ethanol concentration higher than 99%+ with advanced processing techniques.
95% Ethanol (190 Proof)
95% ethanol is the highest proof of alcohol achieved through only distillation without extraordinary processing techniques.
Pure Ethanol
Pure ethanol indicates an un-denatured product (or a product with a single component) as opposed to a mixture. When referring to Un-Denatured Ethanol, the term Pure Alcohol is suitable. It contains no additives, such as bitterants that render it undrinkable. This is also referred to as anhydrous or dehydrated alcohol, meaning it contains little or no water.
Denatured Ethanol

Denatured ethanol contains varying additives which influence its character and useful applications. A denaturant might be added to prevent human consumption, change its chemical properties for a specific application, or to reduce safety hazards and cost when a high purity variation is unnecessary.

Ethanol Grades

Reagent-Grade Ethanol
Reagent-grade ethanol indicates a high ethanol concentration, generally containing over 95% ethanol and free of additives.
Laboratory-Grade Ethanol
Laboratory-grade ethanol is generally a low cost solution available in bulk. It's common in educational or university labs for non-critical processes. Lab grade solvents have no established standards set for quality, which can lead to variation in color and physical form. It is not designed for medical, food, or drug production of any kind.
ACS (Pure Alcohol)
Pure alcohol used in industrial settings, hospitals and research facilities. It meets or exceeds specifications set forth in the American Chemical Society's Reagent Handbook.
FCC-Grade Ethanol
FCC-grade ethanol is an ethyl alcohol preferred for consumables and food ready products, as it is GRAS (generally regarded as safe). For food grade products, FCC (Food Chemicals Codex) accreditation establishes acceptable levels of purity and ingredient quality for products intended for human consumption. It's favored when heavy metals may cause product contamination which are then transferred to consumers.
USP-Grade Ethanol
USP-grade ethanol designates strict guidelines upheld by the FDA throughout all production processes, storage, inspection, and packaging. These specifications improve consistency and safety for industrial, pharmaceutical, flavor, fragrance, or lab use. Only pure, un-denatured alcohol is certified under USP guidelines.
HPLC-Grade Ethanol
HLPC-grade ethanol ensures that a buffer does not contain ions that interfere with the detector. For tissue culture, contaminants could adversely affect cell growth. Molecular biological reagents must not contain contaminants that could affect PCR, DNA, RNA or protein reactions, extraction and purification. (Ask about LC-MS Grade)
