Methanol (CH₃OH) is a chemical and is the simplest alcohol. Also known as methyl alcohol or wood alcohol (since it was originally produced mainly by the distillation of wood), methanol today is mainly produced industrially by the hydrogenation of carbon monoxide. It is a light, volatile, colorless, flammable liquid and has an odor quite like drinking alcohol (ethanol). Methanol, however, is far more toxic than ethanol. At room temperature, methanol is a polar liquid.
A methanol expert or methanol consultant is someone who has a significant background in chemistry and significant experience. The methanol expert can assist clients in a myriad of bioeconomy areas where methanol and its reaction are present. In matters involving bioeconomy litigation, methanol experts are often called upon to serve as expert witnesses to assist the attorneys with understanding the chemistry involved and the processes (and their failures) related to technical issues.
