Ethanol is a clear, colorless liquid that is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed throughout the body. It has bactericidal activity and is often used as a topical

disinfectant. It is widely used as a solvent and preservative in pharmaceutical preparations as well as in serving as the primary ingredient in alcoholic beverages. Ethanol has widespread use as a solvent for substances intended for human contact or consumption, including scents, flavorings, colorings, and medicines.
