How to Synthesize Methanol and Alcohol Mixtures

  • Emil Supp

Abstract

Methanol has a history extending back to the year 1661. P. Boyle then succeeded for the first time in recovering methanol from the components of wood vinegar. He termed the product obtained by rectification “adiaphorus spiritus lignorium”. As at that time there was no use whatsoever for the substance methanol, it was forgotten for many years until Taylor rediscovered it in 1822. Justus von Liebig succeeded in clarifying the chemical individuality of methanol in 1835. He gave it, for the first time, the correct chemical formula
$$ C{H_3}OH $$
and introduced it into chemistry as methyl alcohol.
