Re: [Histonet] Reagent Grade Alcohol

From:Rene J Buesa

I always used 100% (= "200 grade") ,bought in bulk tax exempted, ethanol. Anything you need to do with "pure" ethanol will be simpler to calculate (solutions, mixtures, etc.) with 100% ethanol. Besides that, the "denatured" ethanol contains substances other than ethanol.
Now, "reagent grade" sold by chemical companies with "impurities certificates", are much more expensive and offer no advantage over the type of "200 grade" ethanol I used to use.

Hello Histonetters,

I was just wondering what everyone was using for alcohol. Does anyone
see any differences in Reagent Grade Alcohol compared to LCB regulated
alcohol? ...... Any information on this topic would be greatly

Thanks in advance.
