Methanol also goes by wood naphtha by many other names. It’s the simplest known alcohol and is flammable with an odor similar to ethanol, which is basically like saying it smells like drinking alcohol, but drinking it can destroy the optic nerve and cause permanent blindness. It can be used as an antifreeze, a solvent or a fuel source. It can also denature other chemicals. It’s commonly used to denature ethanol and is thus a component of unleaded gasoline that comprises of 10%-15% ethanol.
