Ethanol for Disinfection
With spreading of a new coronavirus (COVID-19), the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has specified hand-washing and disinfection with alcohol (ethanol at a concentration of 70% to 95%) as countermeasures against viruses in the hands, fingers, etc.1) Disinfection with alcohol is an effective means when hands cannot be washed immediately. Alcohol detoxicates viruses by breaking the their "membranes". The concentration with the most bactericidal effect is referred to as the optimal concentration range (effective range); it is said to be 77 to 82 vol% in ethanol.
80vol% Ethanol is an ethanol solution prepared in the concentration with the high bactericidal effect (77 to 82 vol%). It is also a low-toxicity ethanol that does not contain impurities such as methanol (not denatured alcohol2)) and can be used in various situations, such as disinfection of hands and fingers, disinfection of laboratory instruments and tables, and wiping of stains.

2) In order to prevent alcohol from being diverted for consumption, ethanol with a denaturing agent (methanol, isopropanol) is called denatured alcohol. Because of the influence of coronavirus, inexpensive antimicrobial agents using denatured alcohol are on the market. However, some of the denaturing agents are toxic and caution should be exercised when used in the human body.
This product is prepared at the concentration with expected high bactericidal effect (77 to 82 vol%).
