The brand EMSURE® designates Merck Millipore’s premium grade of classical solvents for all regulated or highly demanding lab applications. They are specified according to the most important international norms, suitable for an extraordinarily wide range of analytical applications and frequently used in challenging quality control processes in production.
EMSURE® grade solvents for analysis offer you industry-leading quality with a truly unique specification scope: We have been able to improve the specific values e.g. for purity, water content and evaporation residue and include additional analysis results, particularly almost the full range of metal ions and further components to improve the impurity profile. You thus benefit from proven safety, maximum reliability and the broadest spectrum of potential applications.
EMSURE® solvents provide the high and defined purity demanded by international regulations for pharmaceutical quality control – they meet or exceed the requirements of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and of the reagent part of the European Pharmacopoeia (Reag. Ph Eur). Furthermore EMSURE® solvents also complies to the requirements of ISO (International Organization for Standardization), which is relevant for all industrial sectors. Together with an unparalleled range of packaging options, withdrawal systems and services, this makes EMSURE® solvents from Merck Millipore the safest and most convenient choice for your quality control processes.SKU: n/a
METHANOL0 out of 5(0)
Methanol is the simplest alcohol, consisting of a methyl group linked to a hydroxyl group. It is a light, volatile, colorless, flammable liquid with a distinctive odor similar to that of ethanol (drinking alcohol). Methanol is however far more toxic than ethanol. At room temperature, it is a polar liquid.
- Methanol is used as a useful fuel for stunt and racing cars as it is less inflammable and can be mixed with water.
- It is also used as a solvent.
- Methanol is also used to make other chemicals such as formaldehyde.
- Being a polar liquid at room temperature, it is used as antifreeze and a denaturant for ethanol.
