Products by product group
Here you find all our products catagorized by the chemical group they belong to. If you know where the product you are looking for belongs to just click on the group and find the product.
Another approach is to look for a product by application or industry where it is used. From both angles the same products are shown.
However, it is of course still posible that you may not find the exact product you are looking for, while it is still very likely that BAX offers you the solution for your search. In that case, please do not hesitate to inform us. Besides the most current products we put up here, it is very much possible that our suppliers can offer and the supply this product the same. All our product pages show, next to a brief introduction, the specifiation sheet (TDS or Sales specifications) Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are avialable on request. )
ALCOHOLS & OXO-ALCOHOLS | METHANOL
Methanol (also known as methyl alcohol; methyl hydroxide; monohydroxymethane; and wood alcohol) has the chemical formula CH3OH and is a clear, colourless liquid which has a mild, characteristic alcohol odour. It is soluble in water and is also soluble in other alcohols, esters, ketones, ethers, and in most other organic solvents.
Methanol is an important chemical feedstock which is used in the production of formaldehyde, methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), and acetic acid. It is also used in the manufacture of DMT, MMA, chloromethanes, methylamines, glycol methyl ethers, and fuels. Methanol also has general solvent and antifreeze uses so can be found as a component of paint stripper, and de-icers.
It's likely that Methanol remains an important chemical in the future, as many countries are seeking to expand methanol fuelling programmes. This is because methanol is readily available, has a high octane rating, and is easy to transport. If methanol production costs can be cut, via large scale plants consuming natural gas, methanol could also be used to make ethylene and propylene, and dimethyl ether. It could also be utilised in power generation.
