Canada's Interim Guide On The Production Of Ethanol For Use In Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizers
May 8, 2020

On This Page 

To help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others, Health Canada recommends that individuals wash their hands often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Similarly, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that individuals regularly and thoroughly clean their hands with soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand rub, as part of proper hand hygiene.

On March 27, 2020, Health Canada released the Guide on Health Canada's Interim Expedited Licensing Approach for the Production and Distribution of Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizers. The purpose of that Guide is to support companies that intend to manufacture, package, label and/or distribute alcohol-based hand sanitizers in response to the current shortage by providing a simplified and expedited pathway to obtaining the required authorizations.

This document provides further guidance on the quality requirements for ethanol to be used in the production of hand sanitizers. It also highlights key formulation aspects and points to additional flexibilities that can be leveraged during this emergency situation.

This interim approach takes into account the current policies and best practices of foreign regulatory partners, including the United States (US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as the recommendations of the WHO and the US Pharmacopeia (USP).

Acceptable Quality Grades

Ethanol used for the production of hand sanitizers should conform to one of the identity and purity criteria published in any of the following quality standards, with any noted deviations provided in this interim guidance. For details on these quality standards, please refer to the weblinks provided below. Please note that some of these references may be accessed for free, while others require payment for full access:

The USP monograph specifies that ethanol must be 94.9% to 96.0% pure by volume, and provides the following concentration limits for impurities commonly found in ethanol:

  • Methanol: No more than 200 µL/L
  • Acetaldehyde and acetal: No more than 10 µL/L, expressed as acetaldehyde
  • Benzene: No more than 2 µL/L
  • Sum of all other impurities: No more than 300 µL/L

Recommended Formulation

All formulations must meet the safety and efficacy requirements established in Health Canada’s Antiseptic Skin Cleansers (Personal Domestic Use) monograph.

Health Canada recommends the manufacturing of ethanol‑based hand sanitizer as per the WHO formulation. Specifically, the WHO-recommended handrub formulations (2010) provides a recipe for the preparation of a hand sanitizer with a final concentration of 80% v/v ethanol. While Health Canada’s monograph stipulates a range of 60%-80 v/v ethanol, an 80% v/v concentration is recommended for increased efficacy.

Formulation For A 10-Litre Preparation 

Other Acceptable Formulations Include: 


Records must be maintained on how the hand sanitizer is prepared, including details on how the final ethanol dilution in the finished product was derived. The amount of ethanol needed in the formulation should be calculated using the following equation (as set out in the USP guidance):

How To Calculate The Amount Of Ethanol In A Hand Sanitizer Formulation

Non-Medicinal Ingredients (NMIs)

All NMIs added to a hand sanitizer product must be listed in Health Canada’s Natural Health Products Ingredient Database (NHPID), indicated with an acceptable purpose and comply with all listed restrictions (as per the NHPID). Additional information is outlined below on quality requirements for specific NMIs used in ethanol-based hand sanitizers, based on the WHO guidance:

NMI  Quality Requirements
Hydrogen Peroxide The low concentration of Hydrogen peroxide in the finished product (0.125%) is intended to help eliminate contaminating spores in the bulk solutions and recipients and is not an active substance for hand antisepsis.
Glycerol and other humectants or emollients

Glycerol (also known as glycerine or 1,2,3-Propanetriol) is added as a humectant at a final concentration of 1.45%, to increase the acceptability of the product and not to enhance viscosity.

Other humectants or emollients at a similar concentration may be used for skin care, provided that they are affordable, available locally, miscible (mixable) in water and alcohol, non-toxic, and not likely to cause an allergic reaction. Glycerol has been chosen because it is safe and relatively inexpensive. Lowering the percentage of glycerol may be considered to further reduce the stickiness of the handrub.

Use of proper
While sterile distilled water is preferred, boiled and cooled tap water may also be used as long as it is free of visible particles.
Addition of other additives It is strongly recommended that no ingredients other than those specified in this document be added to the formulations. All NMIs  (including denaturants) must be listed in the Product Licence application. If additions or substitutions of an NMI are made after the product licence is issued, documentation must be maintained on the safety of the additive and its compatibility with the other ingredients. These documents must be available upon request by Health Canada. Any substitutions should come from approved ingredients in the NHPID. If the NMI that you intend to use is not found in NHPID, you can complete a Natural Health Products Ingredients Database Issue Form and submit to this email to add the ingredient. The full list of ingredients must be provided on the product label.
Denaturants The use of denaturants is recommended to avoid the unintentional ingestion of hand sanitizers (particularly by children), but is not required under this interim approach. The NHPID includes a listing of acceptable denaturants that should be used if applicable in your formulation. Once this interim approach ceases to be in effect, to continue with the manufacture of hand sanitizer products, companies will be required to confirm with Health Canada that denaturants will be used from that point on.
Gelling agents No data are available to assess the suitability of adding gelling agents to WHO-recommended liquid formulations; any additives selected for this purpose must be listed in Health Canada’s NHPID and comply with listed restrictions. The addition of a gelling agent must be included in the list of ingredients on the product label.
Fragrances Adding fragrances, while not prohibited, is not recommended because of the risk of potential allergic reactions. As with other ingredients, a fragrance would be considered an NMI and must be included in the Product Licence application and be listed on the product label.


Formula Substitutions

Ingredients adhering to USP (or other acceptable standards, as listed above) should be used as the source of ingredients. However, given that there may currently be shortages of ingredients used to manufacture formulations of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, the following substitutions are acceptable:

  • When components meeting compendial quality standards are not obtainable, components of similar quality – such as those that are chemically pure, analytical reagent grade, or American Chemical Society-certified – may be used.
  • No ingredients should be added to enhance viscosity as they may decrease the effectiveness of the final preparation.

Disinfectant product ingredients, whether registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency or Health Canada, are not suitable as components for manufacturing hand sanitizers as they may not be safe for use on skin (i.e., may cause burns).

Use Of Non-USP Grade Alcohol

As per the Natural Health Products Regulations (NHPR), a Product Licence will not be issued if a product is likely to result in injury to the health of the consumer. Non-USP grade ethanol should be of a level of quality that is fit for human use in the finished hand sanitizer formulation.

For any products containing ethanol with specifications that deviate from the recommended standards, such as higher than permitted level of impurities in the above referenced standards, a risk assessment must be conducted and submitted to Health Canada for review. Each risk assessment will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine if the ethanol is safe for use in hand sanitizer production. In the risk assessment, particular attention should be given to identify and quantify impurities, which are expected to be present (or likely to be present) as a result of manufacturing processes, starting materials, etc. An example of some impurities that would be expected in a non-USP or food grade ethanol product include acetaldehyde, benzene and methanol, though there may be others as well. Documentation including certificates of analysis (CoA) must be kept on record and made available at the request of Health Canada.

Excise Tax Implications

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) administers the Excise Act, 2001 which governs the federal taxation of several commodities, including spirits, and regulates activities involving the manufacture, possession and distribution of these products. For example, persons who produce and package spirits, persons who use non-duty-paid spirits in the manufacture of non-beverage spirit-based products such as cosmetics or hand sanitizers, and persons who operate warehouses to store non-duty-paid alcohol must possess an excise duty licence issued under the Excise Act, 2001.

Depending on the circumstances, a person may require a spirits licence, a user’s licence and/or a specially denatured alcohol registration in order to legally produce hand sanitizer using non-duty-paid alcohol in Canada. There are a number of ways hand sanitizer can be produced by licensees or registrants without incurring an excise duty liability, for example:

  • A user licensee can produce hand sanitizer in accordance with an approved formulation without the payment of excise duty on the final product.
  • There are also provisions that would allow a specially denatured alcohol registrant to possess and use certain grades of specially denatured alcohol to produce hand sanitizer without the payment of duty.
  • A spirits licensee is authorized under the Excise Act, 2001 to denature spirits according to specified criteria, which are not subject to excise duty.
  • Although it could be cost prohibitive, there is also the option to use duty-paid alcohol to produce hand sanitizer. 

The requirements under the Act will vary depending on the circumstances of each case and the proposed activities to be undertaken.


End Of Interim Approach

This interim approach is in effect immediately, and will be in effect until March 31, 2021 or until a notice is issued by Health Canada to licence holders (whichever is earliest). When the approach expires, production must cease, although existing product stock can be exhausted.

Information On Hand Sanitizer Ingredients From Wikipedia

Hand sanitizer is a liquid, gel, or foam generally used to decrease infectious agents on the hands. In most settings, hand washing with soap and water is generally preferred. Hand sanitizer is less effective at killing certain kinds of germs, such as norovirus and Clostridium difficile and unlike soap and water, it cannot remove harmful chemicals. People may incorrectly wiped off hand sanitizer before it has dried, and some are less effective because their alcohol concentrations are too low.

In most healthcare settings alcohol-based hand sanitizers are preferable to hand washing with soap and water. Reasons include it being better tolerated and more effective. Hand washing with soap and water; however, should be carried out if contamination can be seen, or following the use of the toilet. The general use of non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers has no recommendations.

Alcohol-based versions typically contain some combination of isopropyl alcohol, ethanol (ethyl alcohol), or n-propanol, with versions containing 60% to 95% alcohol the most effective. Care should be taken as they are flammable. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer works against a wide variety of microorganisms but not spores. Compounds such as glycerol may be added to prevent drying of the skin. Some versions contain fragrances; however, these are discouraged due to the risk of allergic reactions. Non-alcohol based versions typically contain benzalkonium chloride or triclosan; but are less effective than alcohol-based ones. 

Alcohol has been used as an antiseptic at least as early as 1363 with evidence to support its use becoming available in the late 1800s. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer has been commonly used in Europe since at least the 1980s. The alcohol-based version is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the safest and most effective medicines needed in a health system. The wholesale cost in the developing world is about US$1.40–3.70 per liter bottle.


General Public 

The Clean Hands campaign by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) instructs the public in hand washing. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is recommended only if soap and water are not available.

When using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer:

  • Apply product to the palm of one hand.
  • Rub hands together.
  • Rub the product over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry.
  • Do not go near flame or gas burner or any burning object during applying hand sanitizer.
  • The current evidence for the effectiveness of school hand hygiene interventions is of poor quality.

Alcohol-based hand sanitizers may not be effective if the hands are greasy or visibly soiled. In hospitals, the hands of healthcare workers are often contaminated with pathogens, but rarely soiled or greasy. In community settings, on the other hand, grease and soiling is common from activities such as handling food, playing sports, gardening, and being active outdoors. Similarly, contaminants like heavy metals and pesticides (generally found outdoors) cannot be removed by hand sanitizers. Hand sanitizers may also be swallowed by children, especially if brightly-coloured.

Some commercially-available hand sanitizers (and online recipes for homemade rubs) have alcohol concentrations that are too low. This makes them less effective at killing germs. Poorer people in developed countries and people in developing countries may find it harder to get a hand sanitizer with an effective alcohol concentration. Fraudulent labelling of alcohol concentrations has been a problem in Guyana.

Health Care 

Hand sanitizers were first introduced in 1966 in medical settings such as hospitals and healthcare facilities. The product was popularized in the early 1990s.

Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is more convenient compared to hand washing with soap and water in most situations in the healthcare setting. Among healthcare workers, it is generally more effective for hand antisepsis, and better tolerated than soap and water. Hand washing should still be carried out if contamination can be seen or following the use of the toilet.

Hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol or contains a "persistent antiseptic" should be used. Alcohol rubs kill many different kinds of bacteria, including antibiotic resistant bacteria and TB bacteria. They also kill many kinds of viruses, including the flu virus, the common cold virus, and HIV.

90% alcohol rubs are more effective against viruses than most other forms of hand washing. Isopropyl alcohol will kill 99.99 % or more of all non-spore forming bacteria in less than 30 seconds, both in the laboratory and on human skin.

The alcohol in hand sanitizers may not have the 10–15 seconds exposure time required to denature proteins and lyse cells in too low quantities (0.3 ml) or concentrations (below 60%). In environments with high lipids or protein waste (such as food processing), the use of alcohol hand rubs alone may not be sufficient to ensure proper hand hygiene.

For health care settings like hospitals and clinics, optimum alcohol concentration to kill bacteria is 70% to 95%. Products with alcohol concentrations as low as 40% are available in American stores, according to researchers at East Tennessee State University.

Alcohol rub sanitizers kill most bacteria, and fungi, and stop some viruses. Alcohol rub sanitizers containing at least 70% alcohol (mainly ethyl alcohol) kill 99.9% of the bacteria on hands 30 seconds after application and 99.99% to 99.999% in one minute.

For health care, optimal disinfection requires attention to all exposed surfaces such as around the fingernails, between the fingers, on the back of the thumb, and around the wrist. Hand alcohol should be thoroughly rubbed into the hands and on the lower forearm for a duration of at least 30 seconds and then allowed to air dry.

Use of alcohol-based hand gels dries skin less, leaving more moisture in the epidermis, than hand washing with antiseptic/antimicrobial soap and water.


There are certain situations during which hand washing with soap and water are preferred over hand sanitizer, these include: eliminating bacterial spores of Clostridioides difficile, parasites such as Cryptosporidium, and certain viruses like norovirus depending on the concentration of alcohol in the sanitizer (95% alcohol was seen to be most effective in eliminating most viruses). In addition, if hands are contaminated with fluids or other visible contaminates, hand washing is preferred as well as after using the toilet and if discomfort develops from the residue of alcohol sanitizer use. Furthermore, CDC states hand sanitizers are not effective in removing chemicals such as pesticides.


Alcohol gel can catch fire, producing a translucent blue flame. This is due to the flammable alcohol in the gel. Some hand sanitizer gels may not produce this effect due to a high concentration of water or moisturizing agents. There have been some rare instances where alcohol has been implicated in starting fires in the operating room, including a case where alcohol used as an antiseptic pooled under the surgical drapes in an operating room and caused a fire when a cautery instrument was used. Alcohol gel was not implicated.

To minimize the risk of fire, alcohol rub users are instructed to rub their hands until dry, which indicates that the flammable alcohol has evaporated. Igniting alcohol hand rub while using it is rare, but the need for this is underlined by one case of a health care worker using hand rub, removing a polyester isolation gown, and then touching a metal door while her hands were still wet; static electricity produced an audible spark and ignited the hand gel. Fire departments suggest refills for the alcohol-based hand sanitizers can be stored with cleaning supplies away from heat sources or open flames.

Research shows that alcohol hand sanitizers do not pose any risk by eliminating beneficial microorganisms that are naturally present on the skin. The body quickly replenishes the beneficial microbes on the hands, often moving them in from just up the arms where there are fewer harmful microorganisms.

However, alcohol may strip the skin of the outer layer of oil, which may have negative effects on barrier function of the skin. A study also shows that disinfecting hands with an antimicrobial detergent results in a greater barrier disruption of skin compared to alcohol solutions, suggesting an increased loss of skin lipids.

In the United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) controls antimicrobial handsoaps and sanitizers as over-the-counter drugs (OTC) because they are intended for topical anti-microbial use to prevent disease in humans.

The FDA requires strict labeling which informs consumers on proper use of this OTC drug and dangers to avoid, including warning adults not to ingest, not to use in the eyes, to keep out of the reach of children, and to allow use by children only under adult supervision. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, there were nearly 12,000 cases of hand sanitizer ingestion in 2006. If ingested, alcohol-based hand sanitizers can cause alcohol poisoning in small children. However, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control recommends using hand sanitizer with children to promote good hygiene, under supervision, and furthermore recommends parents pack hand sanitizer for their children when traveling, to avoid their contracting disease from dirty hands.

There have been reported incidents of people drinking the gel in prisons and hospitals, where alcohol consumption is not allowed, to become intoxicated leading to its withdrawal from some establishments.


On April 30, 2015, the FDA announced that they were requesting more scientific data based on the safety of hand sanitizer. Emerging science suggests that for at least some health care antiseptic active ingredients, systemic exposure (full body exposure as shown by detection of antiseptic ingredients in the blood or urine) is higher than previously thought, and existing data raise potential concerns about the effects of repeated daily human exposure to some antiseptic active ingredients. This would include hand antiseptic products containing alcohol and triclosan.

Surgical Hand Disinfection

Hands must be disinfected before any surgical procedure by hand washing with mild soap and then hand-rubbing with a sanitizer. Surgical disinfection requires a larger dose of the hand-rub and a longer rubbing time than is ordinarily used. It is usually done in two applications according to specific hand-rubbing techniques, EN1499 (hygienic handwash), and EN 1500 (hygienic hand disinfection) to ensure that antiseptic is applied everywhere on the surface of the hand.


Some hand sanitizer products use agents other than alcohol to kill microorganisms, such as povidone-iodine, benzalkonium chloride or triclosan. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the CDC recommends "persistent" antiseptics for hand sanitizers. Persistent activity is defined as the prolonged or extended antimicrobial activity that prevents or inhibits the proliferation or survival of microorganisms after application of the product. This activity may be demonstrated by sampling a site several minutes or hours after application and demonstrating bacterial antimicrobial effectiveness when compared with a baseline level. This property also has been referred to as "residual activity." Both substantive and nonsubstantive active ingredients can show a persistent effect if they substantially lower the number of bacteria during the wash period.

Laboratory studies have shown lingering benzalkonium chloride may be associated with antibiotic resistance in MRSA. Tolerance to alcohol sanitizers may develop in fecal bacteria. Where alcohol sanitizers utilize 62%, or higher, alcohol by weight, only 0.1 to 0.13% of benzalkonium chloride by weight provides equivalent antimicrobial effectiveness.

Triclosan has been shown to accumulate in biosolids in the environment, one of the top seven organic contaminants in waste water according to the National Toxicology Program Triclosan leads to various problems with natural biological systems, and triclosan, when combined with chlorine e.g. from tap water, produces dioxins, a probable carcinogen in humans. However, 90–98% of triclosan in waste water biodegrades by both photolytic or natural biological processes or is removed due to sorption in waste water treatment plants. Numerous studies show that only very small traces are detectable in the effluent water that reaches rivers.

A series of studies show that photodegradation of triclosan produced 2,4-dichlorophenol and 2,8-dichlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (2,8-DCDD). The 2,4-dichlorophenol itself is known to be biodegradable as well as photodegradable. For DCDD, one of the non-toxic compounds of the dioxin family, a conversion rate of 1% has been reported and estimated half-lives suggest that it is photolabile as well. The formation-decay kinetics of DCDD are also reported by Sanchez-Prado et al. (2006) who claim "transformation of triclosan to toxic dioxins has never been shown and is highly unlikely."

Alcohol-free hand sanitizers may be effective immediately while on the skin, but the solutions themselves can become contaminated because alcohol is an in-solution preservative and without it, the alcohol-free solution itself is susceptible to contamination. However, even alcohol-containing hand sanitizers can become contaminated if the alcohol content is not properly controlled or the sanitizer is grossly contaminated with microorganisms during manufacture. In June 2009, alcohol-free Clarcon Antimicrobial Hand Sanitizer was pulled from the US market by the FDA, which found the product contained gross contamination of extremely high levels of various bacteria, including those which can "cause opportunistic infections of the skin and underlying tissues and could result in medical or surgical attention as well as permanent damage". Gross contamination of any hand sanitizer by bacteria during manufacture will result in the failure of the effectiveness of that sanitizer and possible infection of the treatment site with the contaminating organisms.


Alcohol-based hand rubs are extensively used in the hospital environment as an alternative to antiseptic soaps. Hand-rubs in the hospital environment have two applications: hygienic hand rubbing and surgical hand disinfection. Alcohol based hand rubs provide a better skin tolerance as compared to antiseptic soap. Hand rubs also prove to have more effective microbiological properties as compared to antiseptic soaps.

The same ingredients used in over-the-counter hand-rubs are also used in hospital hand-rubs: alcohols such ethanol and isopropanol, sometimes combined with quaternary ammonium cations (quats) such as benzalkonium chloride. Quats are added at levels up to 200 parts per million to increase antimicrobial effectiveness. Although allergy to alcohol-only rubs is rare, fragrances, preservatives and quats can cause contact allergies. These other ingredients do not evaporate like alcohol and accumulate leaving a "sticky" residue until they are removed with soap and water.

The most common brands of alcohol hand rubs include Aniosgel, Avant, Sterillium, Desderman and Allsept S. All hospital hand rubs must conform to certain regulations like EN 12054 for hygienic treatment and surgical disinfection by hand-rubbing. Products with a claim of "99.99% reduction" or 4-log reduction are ineffective in hospital environment, since the reduction must be more than "99.99%".

The hand sanitizer dosing systems for hospitals are designed to deliver a measured amount of the product for staff. They are dosing pumps screwed onto a bottle or are specially designed dispensers with refill bottles. Dispensers for surgical hand disinfection are usually equipped with elbow controlled mechanism or infrared sensors to avoid any contact with the pump.

There are cautions against making your own hand sanitizer. Some widely-circulated home recipes are ineffective or even poisonous.


World Health OrganizationThe has published a guide to producing large quantities of hand sanitizer from chemicals available in developing countries, where commercial hand sanitizer may not be available:

FORMULATION 1  10-L prep. Active ingredient (v/v) FORMULATION 2 10-L prep. Active ingredient (v/v)
Distilled water added to 10000 mL 18.425% Distilled water added to 10000 mL 23.425%
Ethanol 96% 8333 mL 80% Isopropyl alcohol 99.8% 7515 mL 75%
Glycerol 98% 145 mL 1.45% Glycerol 98% 145 mL 1.45%
Hydrogen peroxide 3% 417 mL 0.125% Hydrogen peroxide 3% 417 mL 0.125%


The WHO formulation are less viscous than commercial sanitizer gel, so like alcohol, they are a greater fire hazard.

Consumer alcohol-based hand sanitizers, and health care "hand alcohol" or "alcohol hand antiseptic agents" exist in liquid, foam, and easy-flowing gel formulations. Products with 60% to 95% alcohol by volume are effective antiseptics. Lower or higher concentrations are less effective; most products contain between 60% and 80% alcohol.

In addition to alcohol (ethanol, isopropanol or n-Propanol), hand sanitizers also contain the following:

Hydrogen peroxide may be added to inactivate spores within bottle of hand sanitizer but does not play a role when the hand sanitizer is used.

What Inhibits And Inactivates Viruses?

What Is A Virus?

A virus is an infectious agent that can only replicate within a host organism. Viruses can infect a variety of living organisms, including bacteria, plants, and animals. Viruses are so small that a microscope is necessary to visualize them, and they have a very simple structure. When a virus particle is independent from its host, it consists of a viral genome, or genetic material, contained within a protein shell called a capsid. In some viruses, the protein shell is enclosed in a membrane called an envelope. Viral genomes are very diverse, since they can be DNA or RNA, single- or double-stranded, linear or circular, and vary in length and in the number of DNA or RNA molecules.

The viral replication process begins when a virus infects its host by attaching to the host cell and penetrating the cell wall or membrane. The virus's genome is uncoated from the protein and injected into the host cell. Then the viral genome hijacks the host cell's machinery, forcing it to replicate the viral genome and produce viral proteins to make new capsids. Next, the viral particles are assembled into new viruses. The new viruses burst out of the host cell during a process called lysis, which kills the host cell. Some viruses take a portion of the host's membrane during the lysis process to form an envelope around the capsid.

Following viral replication, the new viruses may go on to infect new hosts. Many viruses cause diseases in humans, such as influenza, chicken pox, AIDS, the common cold, and rabies. The primary way to prevent viral infections is vaccination, which administers a vaccine made of inactive viral particles to an unaffected individual, in order to increase the individual's immunity to the disease.

    'Kid Safe Chemical' Definition And Meaning

    Posted On January 3, 2020

    In 2020, 'Kid Safe Chemicals' in the U.S. reduce the exposure of children to toxic compounds and substances. The potential benefit of using a 'Kid Safe Chemical' outweighs the risk of harm. 'Kid Safe Chemicals' should prevent disease instead of causing it.

    However, the popular consumer and legislative term 'Kid Safe Chemicals', is more of an expression of medical ethics than a nationally regulated standard. The loosely used phrase, 'Kid Safe Chemicals', describes a concept similar to the "first, do no harm” idea attributed to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates in the historical physician's pledge called the Hippocratic Oath. 'Kid Safe Chemicals' "abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm."

    Any chemical, substance or compound in fluid form, solid form or a gaseous state, which has the potential to injure a child is not considered to be a 'Kid Safe Chemical' and is referred to as a dangerous or hazardous chemical. 'Kid Safe Chemicals' are not toxic when exposure or ingestion is in normal amounts.

    Trump Plan ‘Step In Right Direction’ For Ethanol Industry

    Posted On December 9, 2019

    The ethanol industry has been going through a difficult couple of years, local producers and industry spokespeople said. Part of the difficulty has to do with regulatory decisions by the EPA under the Trump administration, they said.

    While factors like the trade war with China and increasing supplies of ethanol being made in the U.S. have also impacted the industry, ethanol producers say changes in regulatory actions have also played a part.

    100% Hydrofluoric Acid And 10% Hydrofluoric Acid For Sale

    Most people that are looking for 100% hydrofluoric acid for sale are actually looking for 100% (or 99.9%) hydrogen fluoride. The sale of this product has been discontinued by numerous pure hydrofluoric acid and pure hydrogen fluoride suppliers including Lab Alley, which does not sell 100% hydrofluoric acid. This is an extremely hard product to located in the USA.

    What Is Hydrogen Fluoride?

    Hydrogen fluoride is a chemical compound that contains fluorine. It can exist as a colorless gas or as a fuming liquid, or it can be dissolved in water.  When hydrogen fluoride is dissolved in water, it may be called hydrofluoric acid.

    Hydrogen fluoride is a highly dangerous gas, forming corrosive and penetrating hydrofluoric acid upon contact with moisture. The gas can also cause blindness by rapid destruction of the corneas.

    HF is miscible with water (dissolves in any proportion). In contrast, the other hydrogen halides exhibit limiting solubilities in water. Hydrogen fluoride form a monohydrate HF.H2O (−40 °C (−40 °F), which is 44 °C (79 °F) above the melting point of pure HF.  Aqueous solutions of HF are called hydrofluoric acid. When dilute, hydrofluoric acid is a weak acid, unlike the other hydrohalic acids. However concentrated solutions are strong acids.

    Hydrogen fluoride is a chemical compound with the chemical formula HF. This colorless gas or liquid is the principal industrial source of fluorine, often as an aqueous solution called hydrofluoric acid. It is an important feedstock in the preparation of many important compounds including pharmaceuticals and polymers (e.g. Teflon). HF is widely used in the petrochemical industry as a component of superacids. Hydrogen fluoride boils near room temperature, much higher than other hydrogen halides.

    About PEG 400

    Posted On November 14, 2019

    PEG 400 (polyethylene glycol 400) is a low-molecular-weight grade of polyethylene glycol. PEG 400 gets it's name because 400 is the molecular weight. It is a clear, colorless, viscous liquid. Due in part to its low toxicity, PEG 400 is widely used in a variety of pharmaceutical formulations.  PEG 400 is soluble in water, acetone, alcohols, benzene, glycerin, glycols, and aromatic hydrocarbons, and is slightly soluble in aliphatic hydrocarbons.  Within the pharmaceutical industry, PEG 400 is used as a solvent, plasticizer, and a surfactant to lower the surface tension of water.  Polyethylene Glycol 400 molecular weight has been shown to eliminate static and not influence physical properties or part performance of plastic pellets and granules. The cost is minimal; it is highly effective and is readily available from Lab Alley.  Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) is an eco-friendly solvent.

    Buy Acetic Acid Online In The United States

    Posted On October 18, 2019

    Acetic acid has been known to humanity for many centuries. It was first discovered in the form of vinegar, when wine got spoiled by the action of bacteria. Ancient Romans cooked soured wine to produce highly sweet syrup. Since then, the importance of acetic acid in food preparation/production steadily grew.

    Acetic acid, systematically named ethanoic acid, is a colourless liquid organic compound with the chemical formula CH₃COOH. It is also known as methanecarboxylic acid. When acetic acid is undiluted it is called glacial acetic acid. Acetic Acid is a synthetic carboxylic acid with antibacterial and antifungal properties. When undiluted, it is sometimes called glacial acetic acid. Vinegar is no less than 4% acetic acid by volume, making acetic acid the main component of vinegar apart from water. Vinegar is an aqueous solution of acetic acid and trace chemicals that may include flavorings.

    To purify organic compounds, acetic acid is used as a solvent for recrystallization. Acetic acid is used for the manufacture of inks and dyes. Acetic acid is also used in making perfumes.

    Acetic acid can be used as an antiseptic against pseudomonas, staphylococci, enterococci, streptococci and others. It is also used in cervical cancer screening. World Health Organization has listed acetic acid in its list of essential medicines. It is also used for the treatment of outer ear infections like the growth of fungus and bacteria.

    Acetic acid (CH3COOH) is one of the simplest carboxylic acids. Under the IUPAC system nomenclature, the name of acetic acid is ethanoic acid.

    Although most consumers are unfamiliar with acetic acid, they are extremely aware if its diluted form, vinegar, which is 4-8% acetic acid by volume. The term “glacial” is indicative of acetic acid in its anhydrous form

    Buy Laboratory Grade Glacial Acetic Acid (99%) And ACS Reagent Grade Glacial Acetic Acid (99.7%) Online In The United States

    Glacial acetic acid is a name for water-free (anhydrous) acetic acid. Similar to the German name Eisessig (ice-vinegar), the name comes from the ice-like crystals that form slightly below room temperature at 16.6 °C (61.9 °F) (the presence of 0.1% water lowers its melting point by 0.2 °C).  To learn the difference between acetic acid and glacial acetic acid, click here. Acetic Acid Glacial is a clear, colorless liquid with a pungent, vinegar odor. It is miscible with water, alcohol, glycerin and ether.

    Buy Dimethylformamide (DMF) For Use As A Chlorophyll Extraction Solvent, Plant Extraction And Botanical Solvent

    Posted On October 18, 2019

    Dimethylformamide (DMF) is frequently used for chemical reactions and other applications, which require a high solvency power. Scientists have studied and analyzed the impact of different types of solvents, such as dimethylformamide (DMF), methanol, hexane, and ethyl alcohol, for the purpose of antioxidant extraction from various plants parts, such as leaves and seeds. In order to extract different phenolic compounds from plants with a high degree of accuracy, various solvents of differing polarities must be used.

    Acetone and dimethylformamide mixtures are used to extract important pigments from plants such as Chlorophylls (Chl).  Dimethylformamide and acetone are used to extract pigments and carotenoids, including xanthophylls, from plant tissues.  Dimethylformamide is a common organic solvent used by agricultural plant scientists for pigment extraction as well as the extraction, isolation and identification of antioxidants, phytochemicals and bioactive compounds from plant extracts. methanol and ethanol are also used to extract phenolic contents from fruits.

    Even though it can be difficult to do, DMF is a residual solvent that should be removed from chemical reaction mixtures that are used during botanical, plant and herbal extraction processes that produce medicinal concentrates.

    How Can Exposure to Methylene Chloride Affect Human Health?

    Posted On October 16, 2019

    Exposure to normal environmental concentrations of methylene chloride/ dichloromethane is unlikely to damage human health. However inhalation of high concentrations (following an accidental release for example) for even short amounts of time may damage the nervous system and the heart and may also cause cancer. Inhalation of ground level ozone (in the formation of which dichloromethane is slightly involved) can exacerbate respiratory conditions such as asthma.

    Safe And Legal Uses Of Chloroform In The United States

    Posted On October 11, 2019 

    • Chloroform For Personal Use As A Solvent
    • For Laboratory Work
    • For Chemistry Applications
    • Chloroform Is Used As A Plant And Botanical Extract Solvent
    • Industrial Solvent For For Gums, Fats, Resins, Elements Like Sulfur And Iodine And Many Other Organic Compounds.
    • Solvent For Plant Extracts: Chloroform is an organic solvent used for the extraction, isolation and characterization of bioactive compounds from plants' extracts.
    • Industrial Use Of Chloroform: Chloroform is used in many industries. It is released from pulp and paper mills, hazardous waste sites, chlorinated water, and certain landfills. Chloroform is used in some refrigerants, solvents, and chemical manufacturing.
    • Reagent Use: As a reagent, chloroform serves as a source of the dichlorocarbene CCl2 group. It reacts with aqueous sodium hydroxide usually in the presence of a phase transfer catalyst to produce dichlorocarbene, CCl2. This reagent effects ortho-formylation of activated aromatic rings such as phenols, producing aryl aldehydes in a reaction known as the Reimer–Tiemann reaction. Alternatively, the carbene can be trapped by an alkene to form a cyclopropane derivative. In the Kharasch addition, chloroform forms the CHCl2 free radical in addition to alkenes.
    • Solvent Use: The hydrogen attached to carbon in chloroform participates in hydrogen bonding. Worldwide, chloroform is also used in pesticide formulations, as a solvent for fats, oils, rubber, alkaloids, waxes, gutta-percha, and resins, as a cleansing agent, grain fumigant, in fire extinguishers, and in the rubber industry. CDCl3 is a common solvent used in NMR spectroscopy.
    • Information From Wikipedia: Chloroform, or trichloromethane, is an organic compound with formula CHCl3. It is a colorless, sweet-smelling, dense liquid that is produced on a large scale as a precursor to PTFE. It is also a precursor to various refrigerants. It is one of the four chloromethanes and a trihalomethane. It is a powerful anesthetic, euphoriant, anxiolytic and sedative when inhaled or ingested.
    • Medicinal Uses: Chloroform is also used in the extraction of antibiotics, vitamins, and flavors, owing to its solvent property. Being 40 times sweeter than sugar, and because of its pain-relieving properties, it was used in toothpaste, mouthwash, and toothache-relieving medicines.
    • Laboratory Uses: Chloroform is used for the preservation of organic tissues in laboratories, such as anatomical specimens, as it prevents their decay. Chloroform has many applications in molecular biology like DNA extraction from cells, using an extraction buffer.
    • Industrial Use: Chloroform  is used as a heat transfer medium in fire extinguishers, where it lowers the temperature of carbon tetrachloride.  Chloroform serves as an intermediate in the production of dyes and pesticides like chloropicrin, and is used as a fumigant of stored-grain crops.
    • Chloroform is used as a solvent for lacquers, floor polishes, resins, adhesives, alkaloids, fats, oils and rubber. Chloroform is used in making a refrigerant called Fluorocarbon- 22 (Chlorodifluoromethane or difluoromonochloromethane). Until the mid-1900s, chloroform was used as an anesthetic to reduce pain during medical procedures.
    • Organic (Phenol–Chloroform) Extraction Use: Organic (phenol–chloroform) extraction uses sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS) and proteinase K for the enzymatic digestion of proteins and nonnucleic acid cellular components. A mixture of phenol:chloroform:isoamyl alcohol is then added to promote the partitioning of lipids and cellular debris into the organic phase, leaving isolated DNA in the aqueous phase. Following centrifugation, the aqueous phase containing the purified DNA can be transferred to a clean tube for analysis.
    • To learn about the social, medical and criminal history of chloroform, order the book titled "Chloroform: The Quest for Oblivion" on Amazon. Chloroform is a dangerously toxic substance.

    Posted On September 16, 2019

    Lab Alley (http://www.laballey.com) recently added 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide to it's chemical line. It is diluted by Lab Alley to 34% before being shipped to customers. Hydrogen peroxide is a natural solution and commonly used for organic chemistry applications. In contrast to "Non-Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide", 35% hydrogen peroxide does not have toxic stabilizers added to the prepared aqueous solution. This is the reason it is considered "food grade". Packaging sizes available from the Texas chemical supplier are 1 gallon, 4x1 gallon cases and bulk 55 gallon drums. The rapidly growing firm also sells other concentrations of H2O2 solutions such as 3%, 6%, 10%, 30% and 32%. These solutions are available in various volumes and grades for household and commercial use. The Austin, Texas based bulk chemical supplier quickly transports 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide to laboratories, factories, workshops, homes, schools, medical and wellness clinics, individual consumers and farms all across America. Caution must be exercised when handling this high concentration chemical because it can cause skin damage. Therefore, for safety reasons, consumers usually dilute 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide to weaker solutions such as 12% or lower, before they use it.

    Discovered by French chemist Louis Jacques in 1818, hydrogen peroxide is now one of the most frequently used chemicals in the United States. It has numerous cosmetic uses and treats acne. You can make toothpaste with baking soda, salt and hydrogen peroxide. It has a controversial role in alternative medicine. It is an eco-friendly fruit and vegetable wash. Hydrogen peroxide solutions, such as 3%, are commonly used for cleaning around the house. Hydrogen peroxide solutions, such as 6% are used for lightening hair. Hydrogen peroxide is a great substitute for chlorine in swimming pools and hot tubs. The pale blue liquid is used to bleach wheat flour, sterilize food packages and germinate seeds. Certified 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide is used for bacterial and fungal control, and for plant/ garden/ botanical cultivation. Hydrogen Peroxide is classified as a mild disinfectant, deodorizing agent, oxidizing agent and bleaching agent and bactericidal. Ethanol and hydrogen peroxide are used extensively in botanical extraction processes. Lab Alley's line of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide is used by farmers, industrial agriculture companies and gardeners all over North America. It is purchased for pest control, treating root rot, pre-treating seeds and to boost plant growth.

    Lab Alley is a bulk hydrogen peroxide e-commerce retailer, supplier, wholesaler, and distributor. Lab Alley's online chemical shop sells solvents, acids, reagents, organic chemicals, buffers, caustics, bases, prepared solutions, inorganic chemicals and laboratory supplies to business and individuals online in the USA. Because many buyers in the United States require fast shipping times, Lab Alley ships 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide the same day or next day.

    “It took our team some time and planning to roll out the product offering of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide in several sizes but we are glad we did. We are happy with the sales numbers. Additionally, we are very pleased that we are solving a problem by having a high demand product with limited supply available to customers in the marketplace”, says Fred Elabed, Partner of Lab Alley LLC.

    Learn About Tinctures On Wikipedia

    A tincture is typically an extract of plant or animal material dissolved in ethanol (ethyl alcohol). Solvent concentrations of 25–60% are common, but may run as high as 90%. In chemistry, a tincture is a solution that has ethanol as its solvent. In herbal medicine, alcoholic tinctures are made with various ethanol concentrations, 20% being the most common.

    Other solvents for producing tinctures include vinegar, glycerol (also called glycerin), diethyl ether and propylene glycol, not all of which can be used for internal consumption. Ethanol has the advantage of being an excellent solvent for both acidic and basic (alkaline) constituents. A tincture using glycerine is called a glycerite. Glycerine is generally a poorer solvent than ethanol. Vinegar, being acidic, is a better solvent for obtaining alkaloids but a poorer solvent for acidic components. For individuals who choose not to ingest alcohol, non-alcoholic extracts offer an alternative for preparations meant to be taken internally.

    Learn About Extracts From Wikipedia

    An extract is a substance made by extracting a part of a raw material, often by using a solvent such as ethanol or water. Extracts may be sold as tinctures, absolutes or in powder form.  The aromatic principles of many spices, nuts, herbs, fruits, etc., and some flowers, are marketed as extracts, among the best known of true extracts being almond, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, lemon, nutmeg, orange, peppermint, pistachio, rose, spearmint, vanilla, violet, rum, and wintergreen.

    What Is A Plant Extract?

    A plant extract is a substance or an active with desirable properties that is removed from the tissue of a plant, usually by treating it with a solvent, to be used for a particular purpose. Extracts may be used in various sectors of activities : Food and functional properties for foodstuffs (antioxidant, texturizer, etc…), Processing aids, additives – chemical replacers, pharmaceutical for therapeutic properties - preventive and/or curative – cosmetic for functional properties for beauty and well-being, etc..

          Posted On August 29, 2019

          Triacetin is a triglyceride obtained by acetylation of the three hydroxy groups of glycerol. It has fungistatic properties (based on release of acetic acid) and has been used in the topical treatment of minor dermatophyte infections. It has a role as a plant metabolite, a solvent, a fuel additive, an adjuvant, a food additive carrier, a food emulsifier, a food humectant and an antifungal drug. It derives from an acetic acid.  Triacetin is found in fruits. Triacetin is a flavouring agent, adjuvant; formulation aid, humectant, solvent and vehicle. Triacetin is present in papaya. It is a triglyceride that is used as an antifungal agent.


          It is an artificial chemical compound, commonly used as a food additive, for instance as a solvent in flavorings, and for its humectant function. It is used as an excipient in pharmaceutical products, where it is used as a humectant, a plasticizer, and as a solvent. Triacetin can also be used as a fuel additive as an antiknock agent which can reduce engine knocking in gasoline, and to improve cold and viscosity properties of biodiesel. It has been considered as a possible source of food energy in artificial food regeneration systems on long space missions. It is believed to be safe to get over half of one's dietary energy from triacetin.

          Triacetin (C9H14O6), also known as glyceryl triacetate, is pharmaceutical excipient used in manufacturing of capsules and tablets, and has been used as a humectant, plasticizer, and solvent. It is a liquid, and has been approved by the FDA as a food additive.

          Triacetin was affirmed as a generally recognized as safe (GRAS) human food ingredient by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Triacetin was not toxic to animals in acute oral or dermal exposures, nor was it toxic in short-term inhalation or parenteral studies, and subchronic feeding and inhalation studies.

          Triacetin is readily soluble in aromatic hydrocarbons and most organic solvents. It is insoluble in aliphatic hydrocarbons, mineral oils, and vegetable and animal oils. Solubility in water is low.

          It has been used for over 75 years for a wide range of uses, including cosmetic biocide (most often as a fungicide), plasticizer, solvent in cosmetic formulas, food additive (as a flavoring agent and adjuvant), and as a binder for combustible material in solid-rocket propellants.  It is a colorless, oily liquid that, although is most often synthesized, can be found naturally in cod-liver oil, butter, and other fats.

          It is pharmaceutical excipient used in manufacturing of capsules and tablets, and has been used as a humectant, plasticizer, and solvent. It is a liquid, and has been approved by the FDA as a food additive. Triacetin is a water-soluble short-chain triglyceride that may also have a role as a parenteral nutrient according to animal studies. It is also used in the perfume and cosmetic industries.

          Your Guide to Ethanol Extraction

          Published on July 11, 2018
          Posted on August 15, 2019

          Ethanol extraction is a thriving business. Although the market is becoming more saturated which is driving down prices it is still a profitable business. Ethanol is a colorless volatile flammable liquid used as a solvent. The FDA classifies ethanol as a class 3 solvent with low risk for acute or chronic toxicity. Ethanol extraction can be conducted under warm or cold conditions. The warm approach is usually completed for small batches, but it is time efficient. The cold or room temperature approach is common because it allows for the retention of acid. Ethanol extraction can be done as expensively or inexpensively as the manufacturer wishes. Ethanol for botanical extraction is for sale at lab alley.


          Extraction Methods 

          Published on Eden Labs LLC
          Posted on August 15, 2019

          There are four extraction methods Eden labs will discuss. The reflux method utilizes a basket of herbs that is suspended beneath an inverted condenser. The solvent is placed in the bottom of the distiller and is vaporized through heat or vacuum. Next, the cold wash ethanol method is said to be ideal for botanical extraction. A spray head is attached to the bottom of the condenser, it is connected to a pumping system. A solvent is then sprayed over the basket and it soaks through taking the extract to the bottom of the distiller. This acts like a traditional coffee maker. Next is the stirred reactor, in this method of botanical extraction. A pot of liquid herbs is stirred and heated in order to release the chemicals in the plant. The finished extract is pumped out of the tank. Another method is the percolator method. The herb is placed in a column and solvent is filtered gradually through the surface. This allows gravity to do the work. All the different extraction methods use a solvent to extract the herbs, a common solvent used is ethanol. Lab alley has ethanol for botanical extraction for sale. They have fast shipping in the USA.


          Why Ethanol Works so Well for Botanical Extraction

          Published on August 31, 2016
          Posted on August 15, 2019

          The botanical industry used two main types of solvents to extract herbal solutions; butane and supercritical CO2. But high-quality producers of herbal extracts have begun using ethanol instead. Some believe that ethanol is the overall best solvent for botanical extraction. Ethanol is said to be as safe as CO2 but also as efficient as butane. Ethanol is considered generally safe by the FDA, so it is approved for human consumption. The ethanol that is removed from the finished concentrate can be reused multiple times This helps eliminate chemical waste. Lab Alley sells ethanol for extraction, they have fast shipping in the USA.

          Choosing the Right botanical Extraction Method

          Published October 30, 2018
          Posted on August 15, 2019

          Choosing the “right” extraction method depends on what you hope to accomplish. There is no perfect method, it all depends what is important to you. Do you want to focus on safety? Do you need to produce a large quantity? Is time a factor? All these things go into choosing which method will be best for you. In CO2 extraction, carbon dioxide is pressurized in metal tanks until it becomes supercritical fluid, then the fluid pulls out the desirable compounds from the flower. Hydrocarbon extraction uses butane as a solvent. It is passed through raw plant matter to collect extracts. Ethanol extraction is done by soaking raw plant material in ethanol to pull trichomes into the solvent. The liquid is filtered, and the alcohol is purged. If you want to order ethanol for extraction, lab alley has it for sale now. They offer fast shipping in the USA.

          How 200 Proof Ethanol Completely Denatured With Heptane Is Used In U.S. Botanical Industries

          Posted On July 21, 2019

          Ethanol denatured with heptane is a high purity extraction grade. Ethanol and n-heptane are non-polar solvents. This extraction solvent is ideal the production of "crude botanical extracts". Crude extract is an unprocessed material that must be refined by Botanical processors to produce final products sold to dispensaries and consumers. Crude extracts are produced using ethanol extraction or CO2 extraction. End products such as vape pens and edibles have varying extraction requirements. Note that heptane should be purged from final Botanical products and crude botanical extracts.

          Heptane is used in the USA to dissolve or remove waxes/ lipids during the extraction process. Because heptane is nonpolar it is a good solvent for extraction. Heptane’s boiling point is around 209°F, so it is important to properly purge the heptane before consumption. When processing botanical extract the first step is to dry it out and then soak it in the solvent until it dissolves. Then the botanical extract can be collected from the solvent. Next is the purging process, because hexane is not pressurized the purging process may take longer than using ethanol denatured with hexane. But using heptane as a solvent has its benefits. It creates a more potent and flavorful botanical oil. Lab Alley provides fast shipping in the USA. Heptane is also used to remove botanical resin concentrates, as a "wash" for butane hash oil/ butane honey oil (BHO) products and for recrystallization processes.  

          Butane Hash Oil, or BHO, is a botanical concentrate (extract) produced using butane as a solvent.  Because of its effectiveness, pricing over CO2 extraction and purity - butane hash oil extraction is a popular process for manufacturing botanical concentrates in the United States. Consumers in the USA purchase vape pens that contain botanical concentrates which are evaporated during the inhalation process.

                What Is Hexane Used For In The Botanical Processing and Extraction Industry?

                Posted on July 10, 2019

                Hexane can be used as a solvent and a wash in the botanical extraction process. n-Hexane is used to extract oil and other compounds from plant material. Hexane is used to remove chlorophyll from plant materials and extracts. The hexane extraction is a process frequently used in food industry and soyfood processing. Hexane is a popular solvent for extraction of oils, chlorophyll, bioactive compounds and other constituents of plant foods. Hexane removes undesirable constituents from plant foods and solutions. Buy hexane for botanical oil extraction from Lab Alley online in the USA.  In solvent extraction, n-hexane is used as a solvent for its attributes such as simple recovery, non-polar nature, low latent heat of vaporization (330 kJ/kg) and high selectivity to solvents.  Hexane has been widely used for oil extraction because of easy oil recovery, narrow boiling point (63–69 °C) and excellent solubilizing ability.

                It is important to understand the safety and efficiency of various extraction methods.  Hexane is highly flammable and explosive. It is important to use hexane in the correct environment and take the necessary safety precautions. Hexane should be used in a well-ventilated area or outside. People use hexane to produce a final product that is much more potent than the original herb. When using hexane for botanical processing it allows the user to isolate more desirable compounds than the herb provides freshly harvested. The purpose of using hexane or other solvents such as ethanol, pentane or hexane are to reduce the plant in solution then remove the chemicals. If done incorrectly the herbal oil and compounds can remain full of chemicals that could be harmful to the human body. In order to purge hexane from the finished product there are two options; heat and vacuum using thin film techniques or washing it in food grade ethanol. Hexane is ideal for dissolving the waxes and lipids during the extraction process. It is important to use a good grade of hexane or distill the hexane before using it for the extraction. This will produce better results in the end. You can purchase hexane for botanical processing and extraction at Lab Ally.

Also known as n-Hexane, this chemical is a petroleum distillate made from crude oil, is used to purge or wash plant materials such as seeds to release oils. n-Hexane, sold by Lab Alley is used in industrial facilities and laboratories in the United States.

                Buy Hexane For Oil Extraction Facilities In The USA
                Hexane is frequently mixed with other chemical liquid solvents such as ethanol to extract vegetable oil and canola oil from crops such as soybeans.  Manufacturing facilities in the USA buy hexane for oil extraction from Lab Alley. Soybean oil is produced from hexane sold by Lab Alley. Hexane is one of the most popular solvents used in food science systems that extract nutraceuticals from plants, seeds and flowers. In 2019, the conventional technology used for oil extraction from oilseeds is by solvent extraction. In solvent extraction, n-hexane is used as a solvent for its attributes such as simple recovery, non-polar nature, low latent heat of vaporization (330 kJ/kg) and high selectivity to solvents.  Hexane purchased from Lab Alley is used by biodiesel producers in the USA to extract oil (lipids) from microalgae.
                Solutions such as Methanol/Ammonia/Water‐Hexane are used to extract glucosinolates from mustard seeds. Hexane, a non-polar solvent is used to extract oils from oilseeds, flaxseed, dried and cured organically grown fresh herbs and seeds. It is commonly used for pharmaceuticals and food processing.

                The term “hexanes” (CAS 110-54-3) is a hydrocarbon distillation fraction that contains a mixture of linear and branched hexane isomers. Certain types of high purity hexane solvent solutions are used in science and food laboratories HPLC, spectrophotometry, and GC/MS analysis.  Since hexane cannot be easily deprotonated, it is used in the laboratory for reactions that involve very strong bases.  Chemical processing labs use hexane to extract oil and grease contaminants from water and soil for analysis. Hexane is used for development, manufacturing and research applications throughout America. Hexanes are commonly used in chromatography.

                        Solvents are substances used to dissolve a solute (a chemically distinct liquid, solid or gas), resulting in a solution. In chemistry, a solution is a homogeneous mixture of two or more substances. The substances that are dissolved are called solutes.  Solvents form solutions (solutes) by suspending substances. Most solvents sold by Lab Alley in the U.S. are in liquid form, although Lab Alley also sells gas solvents to some industrial customers. Other forms of solvents are solid or supercritical fluid, neither of which are sold by Lab Alley.  Solvents like pure 100% 200 proof ethanol are used for extraction processes. Ethanol is an excellent solvent for efficiently extracting compounds from plant materials, seeds, nuts, hops, botanicals, flowers and herbs.  Extraction and distillation processes produce flavors, perfumes, tinctures, aromatics, flavonoidsterpenes, volatile and essential oils.  Supercritical CO2 extraction (SCFE), a non-toxic and clean solvent process, is also a fairly safe technique used by extraction facilities in the USA in 2019. Lab Alley sells gas solvents like butane in 20 pound tanks. Liquid solvents sold by Lab Alley, such as denatured alcohol, are used for cleaning and disinfecting. Many people in the USA buy household solvents for domestic uses. Lab Alley does not sell the most common "universal solvent", which is water, for obvious reasons.

                          Overview Of Extraction Grade Ethanol Products Sold In The USA

                          Today, in 2019,food grade ethanol (pure non-denatured 200 proof ethanol) is gaining popularity, hailed as the safest and most effective solvent for extracting a full-spectrum concentrate intended for medicinal and recreational use. The terms "botanical extraction" and "botanical processing" are often used interchangeably. The "Four Pillars Of Quality Botanical Extraction" involve cultivation, analytics, extraction and biochemistry. Lab Alley ethanol products sold in the USA are perfect for the extraction pillar in the equation. The extraction process converts target molecules in raw material into a usable product.  Using ethanol as a solvent is very popular in the herbal and processing industry because it is relatively safe for edibles and oils that people consume every day. 

                          Choose Between Two Types Of Extraction Grade Ethanol

                          Food Grade Ethanol For Extraction
                          Food grade ethanol is pure 100% ethyl alcohol. It is 200 proof. It is non-denatured. It is an essential chemical compound used in many plant processing facilities in the United States in 2019. Food grade ethanol is very safe, when properly used, for botanical extraction and processing.  It is approved for use in food and beverage processing facilities. Excise tax and HAZMAT fees may apply to these products. 

                          Excise Tax Free - High Purity Ethanol (Blended and Denatured)
                          The High Purity Ethanol Blend sold here by Lab Alley has one slight advantage over food grade ethanol. Although some botanical processors prefer to use food grade ethanol for use with more optimally efficient processing equipment, others prefer the high purity blend. Companies that want save money by avoiding paying excise tax fees buy a denatured high purity blend of ethanol that also safe for extraction purposes. Both types of extraction grade ethanol (200 proof and Blended) have different advantages and slight disadvantages related to price and quality. There are two blended versions, one with Hexane and one with Heptane. Specially Denatured Alcohols (SDA 2B-5 and SDA 2B-4) are denatured with N-Hexane and N-Heptane. Both are non-polar solvents used to denature 100% ethyl alcohol.

                          How To Buy Ethanol For Botanical Extraction In The U.S.

                          October 19, 2018

                          Today, in 2018, pure ethanol is gaining popularity, hailed as the safest and most effective solvent for extracting a full-spectrum herbal concentrate intended for medicinal and recreational use.  Advantages over other common extraction methods- like alternative solvents (butane, hexane, isopropyl alcohol), hydrocarbons and supercritical CO2- include high yields, increased terpene counts, reduced impurity levels, and lower energy use. Entrepreneurs are working with increasingly thinner margins within which they can develop quality extracts, oils, and edibles. One of the largest expenses is the excise taxes associated with undenatured ethanol used for botanical extraction.  For those concerned with any risks associated with introducing a non-food grade solvent in their manufacturing processes, there’s no shortage of undenatured ethanol available in bulk from Lab Alley.

                          Why Ethanol Works So Well For Botanical Extraction

                          July 25, 2018

                          While butane and CO2 extraction have been the most common mediums for creating herbal oil out of flower buds, some experts believe food grade ethanol extraction is the superior method. Central to this belief is that extracts can be effectively separated from the undesirable plant matter, leaving a substance that is superior in quality and flavor. Being a labeled food grade product by the FDA also makes for a safer product for employees to be exposed to during the workday. Lab Alley offers a number of ethyl alcohols, including denatured ethanol products, and pure ethanol products for laboratory use and botanical extraction.
