"Ethyl Alcohol / Methyl Alcohol Analysis" and Determination of Alcohol Ratio in Beverages
Recently, many casualties have occurred in our country due to fake alcohol.
Some of these casualties are caused by the use of methyl alcohol instead of ethyl alcohol in fake drinks produced in incompetent places. Some of the casualties are caused by the fact that products that should be used as disinfectants are put on the market as fake drinks by putting aroma into them.
In the production of the drink, when methyl alcohol is used instead of ethyl alcohol, organ damage and deaths, especially blindness, occur.
In the case of smuggled alcohol consumption by adding various flavors to disinfectants with a much higher proportion of ethyl alcohol than alcohol, poisoning and deaths may occur due to high levels of ethyl alcohol or other chemicals in the disinfectant.
The determination of whether the alcohol in the drink is ethyl alcohol or methyl alcohol and also the percentage of alcohol in the product is carried out with instrumental devices in our laboratory.
