The uses of 140 proof ehtanol include the production of pharmaceuticals and the production of disinfectants. Ethanol 70% is a widely used aseptic for laboratory settings; the comparatively lower alcohol content esnures that the ethanol does not evaporate instantly and thereby disinfects work spaces more thoroughly. This kosher alcohol acts as a solvent or reagent in laboratory use, and is also commonly used for cleaning surfaces or making tinctures. Lastly, this ethyl alcohol is used to dissolve water-insoluble medication.
