Ethanol (Anhydrous Alcohol) - 500 ml
- 200 Proof Ethanol denatured with 5% methanol
- Used for precipitating nucleic acids
Ethanol is widely used for precipitating nucleic acids. The nucleic precipitate, which is formed in the presence of moderate concentrations of monovalent cations, is recovered by centrifugation and redissolved in an appropriate buffer at the desired concentration.
200 Proof Ethanol is denatured with methyl alcohol.
Ethanol is also known as ethyl alcohol, alcohol anhydrous, denatured alcohol.
