Parameters of methanol
Application of methanol
It produces formaldehyde, acetic acid, pesticide and so on. It is used as extractant for organic matter and denaturant of alcohol.
1. It is used in the manufacture of methyl formate and methylamine.
2.Synthetic carbonic acid two methyl ester, ethylene glycol and methanol protein
3. Used as cleaning deoiling agent and analytical reagent, such as solvents, methylation reagents, chromatographic analysis reagents.
4. It is an excellent energy and vehicle fuel to make olefin and propylene to solve the problem of shortage of resources.
5.The growth accelerators can be made to increase the yield of crops and keep the branches and leaves fresh and strong. In summer, the irrigation water is reduced and the growth of dryland crops is favorable.
