Ethanol, also called ethyl alcohol, pure alcohol, grain alcohol, or drinking alcohol, is a volatile, flammable, colorless liquid. It is a psychoactive drug, best known as the type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages. While it was a common primary fuel in early liquid-fuel rocket motors, it is widely used as a fuel additive, and is extensively used as a solvent.
