What is Methanol?

Also known as methyl alcohol, wood naphtha or wood spirits, methanol is a type of alcohol with the formula CH3OH (often written as MeOH). It’s the simplest alcohol, and at room temperature, forms a clear and highly flammable solution with a characteristic sweet smell.

The reference to wood alcohol derives from the fact that it was once produced during the distillation of wood. This process is no longer used, and modern synthetic processes rely instead on carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrogen. Methanol can also be generated naturally via bacterial fermentation and a small amount is always present in the atmosphere. However, it never accumulates as it’s quickly oxidised to carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).

2 CH3OH + 3 O2 → 2 CO2 + 4 H2O

Ingestion of large amounts of methanol is extremely dangerous, as it’s converted to toxic compounds including formic acid and formate salts. These can affect the central nervous system and cause blindness, coma or even death. As a consequence, this alcohol is frequently used as a denaturant additive for synthetic ethanol, to prevent people from drinking industrial grade ethanol.

In the early 70s, researchers developed a way to convert methanol to fuel for use in vehicles

Industrial synthesis

There are various ways to synthesise methanol, using different compounds from carbon monoxide to methane:

  • In the presence of a catalyst, carbon monoxide and hydrogen can react to produce methanol. The most common catalysts used include aluminium, copper and zinc. This can also be done using methane, which is then converted to CO and H2.CO + 2 H2 → CH3OH
  • Methanol can also be generated directly from carbon dioxide, in the presence of copper oxide (CuO) and cuprous oxide (Cu2O). The process has a 95% efficiency and can be used in industrial settings.CO2 + 3 H2 → CH3OH + H2O

Quality specifications

Methanol can be synthesised in various grades, for laboratory or industrial applications. Typical impurities include volatile compounds difficult to separate by distillation, such as acetone and ethanol. Other types of contaminants are also expected depending on the container used to transport this chemical.

An easy and quick way to assess methanol’s quality is by comparative ultraviolet spectroscopy. With this method, even minute traces of contaminants or chemicals derived from the parent substances can be detected. Other quality checks include testing the boiling point, density and turbidity, as well as colour index and acid number. For higher grade methanol used for laboratory purposes, it may be necessary to determine the amount of water present. This is achieved using the Fischer method or gas chromatography, although the latter may be an extremely expensive option.

Uses and applications

Substrate for industrial processes

The main use for methanol is certainly to synthesise other chemicals. For example, about 40% of all methanol produced is converted to formaldehyde in the process of manufacturing many different products, from explosives to plastic. Other processes involving this alcohol include the synthesis of dimethyl ether, an aerosol spray propellant, and propylene.

Fuel and fuel additives

In the early 70s, researchers developed a way to convert methanol to fuel for use in vehicles. About 20 years later, methanol was also used as a starting point for fuel additive methyl tert-buthyl ether (MTBE), which is still used in some parts of the world. More recently, methanol has been used directly in a transesterification reaction to produce biodiesel (see image 1). One of the main problems with this application is that, although considered a weak acid, methanol can be highly corrosive, especially to aluminium. This has been addressed by adding corrosion inhibitors to the solution
