TESTS FOR ETHANOL:
* When ethanol is added to acetic acid(CH3COOH), a characteristic pleasant odour of ethyl acetate/ethyl ethanoate can be smelled. This reaction is also called ESTERIFICATION. This reaction proves to be a test for ethanol/ethyl alcohol as well as can be used to add odour/flavour to substances like soap.
We are reputed manufacturer and supplier of ethanol and only after testing the ethanol for its purity as well as its nature, we supply our product.

Iodoform test aids in distinguishing ethanol and methanol. For iodoform reaction to take place the compound should contain CH3-CHR-OH, where R can be H or alkyl group. Ethanol when reacts with iodine in the presence of sodium hydroxide gives yellow precipitate.Ethanol has one methyl group linked to the carbon which is attached to hydroxyl group hence gives a positive result to iodoform test. Methanol does not give a positive iodoform test as they do not have a methyl group attached to the carbon which contains the OH group.
