When I was a college student taking chemistry back in the ’70s, I remember the professor saying, “Remember CH3OH (methanol) and C2H6O (ethanol). The single form will make you blind if you drink it.”

As little as 10mL (0.3 fl oz) can destroy the optic nerve and leave you blind if you accidentally drink it.

In the current panic buying of alcohol, it’s important to remember the difference (transferring it to containers that children might handle, etc.)

メタノールとエタノール

1970年代の化学のクラスで教授が「CH3OH (メタノール) C2H6O (エタノール)を覚えなさい。半分の方(CH3)を飲むと失明する」

僅かな10mLで視神経を破壊する。

最近の消毒液買いだめ騒動ではその差を覚えなければならない(瓶の入れ替え、子供の手が届く所に置くなど)
