Methanol, forby kent as methyl alcohol amang ither names, is a chemical wi the formula CH3OH (eften abbreviatit MeOH). Methanol acquired the name "wid alcohol" acause it wis ance produced chiefly as a biproduct o the destructive distillation o wid. The day, industrial methanol is produced in a catalytic process directly frae carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, an hydrogen.
