Methanol is colorless, volatile, flammable, and poisonous. it is made from the destructive distillation of wood and is chiefly synthesized from carbon monoxide and hydrogen. Its principal uses are in organic synthesis, as a fuel, solvent, and antifreeze.Methanol is a polar liquid at room temperature.
