Abstract

It is well known that almost all alcohols purchased in the market contain considerable water. It varies from five per cent to fifteen per cent in methyl and ethyl alcohols and is less in amyl and other alcohols. It was thought that it would be interesting and profitable to determine the degree of dehydration produced by the action of calcium carbide on the water in these alcohols.
