  • Ethanol - 967 Words
    Ethanol: Good or Bad? In the pursuit of a cleaner renewable resource to fossil fuels, many scientist have found alternatives. Examples include solar, wind, biogas, geothermal, biomass energy and cellulosic ethanol. In the last twenty years, efforts have been made to reduce our dependency on foreign oil and ethanol has been an option. Ethanol is nothing new; in fact, it was first used in a motor built by Samuel Morey in 1826 (Ethanol History). Since the 1980s, the government started having oil...

  • Ethanol - 577 Words
    Ethanol Ethanol is easily soluble in water in all proportions with a slight overall decrease in volume when the two are mixed. Absolute ethanol and 95% ethanol are themselves good solvents, somewhat less polar than water and used in perfumes, paints and tinctures. Other proportions of ethanol with water or other solvents can also be used as a solvent. Alcoholic drinks have a large variety of tastes because various flavor compounds are dissolved during brewing. When ethanol is produced as a...

  • Ethanol - 2007 Words
    Introduction: Ethanol is a form of a alcohol, also called ethyl alcohol, pure alcohol, grain alcohol, or drinking alcohol. It is a volatile, flammable, colorless liquid. Ethanol is a straight-chain alcohol, and its molecular formula is C2H5OH. Its empirical formula is C2H6O. An alternative notation is CH3–CH2–OH, which indicates that the carbon of a methyl group (CH3–) is attached to the carbon of a methylene group (–CH2–), which is attached to the oxygen of a hydroxyl group (–OH). It is a...

  • Production of Ethanol - 548 Words
    Introduction Ethanol most commonly which is produced through the fermentation of glucose by yeast cells. Fermentation is an energy-yielding process that cells carry out in the absence of oxygen. Although fermentation does not provide much usable energy for the cell, it is sufficient for yeast cells. Yeast cells produce ethanol and CO 2 as byproducts, and the ethanol produced valuable energy source. There is much interest in ethanol as an energy alternative which are nonrenewable and contribute...

    Marijuana and Alcohol: Effects on the Body It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that alcohol and marijuana comprise the two most commonly abused drugs by young adults in America. But while many would ask why young adults use these drugs, it’s more important to understand how these drugs affect the body. What exactly do these drugs do to the body and how does the body process them? Are the effects always negative? Does the amount consumed make a significant difference? First I will give a brief...
