Latest research on Ethanol

A clear, colorless liquid rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed throughout the body. It has bactericidal activity and is used often as a topical disinfectant. It is widely used as a solvent and preservative in pharmaceutical preparations as well as serving as the primary ingredient in alcoholic beverages. [PubChem]

Latest findings

However, Laskar et al. [88] reported that the phenolic compounds in aqueous extracts of Indian propolis were in higher concentration when compared to EtOH extracts. [source, 2016]
Buprenorphine Hydrochloride (Tocris, UK), Ethanol (Sigma-Aldrich, UK), Methadone Hydrochloride (Sigma-Aldrich, UK), and Morphine hydrochloride (Macfarlane Smith) were dissolved in sterile saline. [source, 2016]
The Antimicrobial agents tested were Ampicillin (AMP), amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (AMC), Cefuroxime (CXM), cefotaxime (CTX), Ceftazidime (CAZ), Imipenem (IPM), TETRACYCLINE (TET), trimethoprim/ Sulfamethoxazole (SXT), Amikacin (AMK), Gentamicin (GEN), Ciprofloxacin (CIP), Chloramphenicol (CHL), and FOSFOMYCIN (FOF).

Zordi et al., [87] indicated two possible applications for the use of supercritical CO2 for samples of propolis: obtain lipophilic fractions enriched by specific components, or as a pre-treatment of the raw material to facilitate the additional extraction with Ethanol. [source, 2016]
The nucleic acid pellet was washed with Ethanol and resuspended in RNase free water. [source, 2016]
The Fig 5 shows the chromatogram of a green propolis samples obtained by ethanolic extraction (GPR EtOH). [source, 2016]
Sixteen obstetric infection E. coli (obstetric IEC) (25%) and 29 VEC isolates (5%) were susceptible to all the Antimicrobial agents tested. [source, 2016]
The content of p-coumaric acid varied from 5.05±0.10 (BSC SCO2) to 198.09±3.12 μg/ml (GPR SCO2), whereas that of the Artepillin C varied from 58.32±1.00 (BSC EtOH) to 845.05±0.12 μg/ml (GPR EtOH) among the extracts. [source, 2016]
The extracts obtained by SFE can have a concentration four times higher than that of the p-coumaric acid, when compared to the EtOH extracts. [source, 2016]
In view of that, a better extraction of both phenolic acids by SFE is justified, when compared to EtOH extraction. [source, 2016]
