# Is 70 percent ethanol the same with 70 percent ethanol?

Absolutely, recent painstaking scientific research has showed that 70% ethanol is the same as 70% ethanol.

### Why 70 percent ethanol is better than 100 percent ethanol for sterilisation?

bcz, 100% ethanol is more volatile when compared to 70% ethanol.... so that, the acting time of 70% ethanol is more and also 100% ethanol acts only on surface proteins whereas 70% ethanol acts on internal proteins.

### Why 70 percent ethanol is used for sterilization instead of 100 percent?

70% ethanol has been shown to have the highest killing ability of microbes. Also, 100% ethanol is toxic to the user

### Why is 70 percent ethanol used in rna extraction?

The density of 70% ethanol allows RNA settlement or say sedimentation in the vial.

### Why 70 percent percent ethanol used in labs?

70% is the most effective concentration to denature poteins so killing bacteria. At 95% the ethanol just evaporates and leaves the protein untouched. Below 70% does not denature proteins. It also makes the ethanol less flammable.

### Why added 70 percent cold ethanol in DNA extraction?

DNA is insoluble in ethanol, therefore it can be extracted afterwards

### How do you dilute from ethanol 96 percent to 70 percent?

### What is the total volume of 70 percent ethanol from 1600ml ethanol?

If I understand you correctly, we are trying to find the volume of 70% of 1600 ml of ethanol. That said: here is how you do it: 1. Change 70% into a decimal. You do this by moving the decimal point two places to the right. This would turn 70 into .70 2. Multiply .70 x 1600. 3. The answer is: 1120mL.

### Why do you use 70 percent alcohol and not 90 percent while microbial culture?

Ethanol creates pores in the cell membrane of the microbial cell by solubilizing the lipoproteins of the membrane. The activity of ethanol determines its concentration. If we 90 percent ethanol, the amount of ethanol molecules available to act upon the cell is more and it attacks the cell membrane from all sides. The dissolved lipoprotein forms a kind of layer around the cell, due to which the alcohol is unable to act further and cause… Read More

### How does one prepare 70 percent ethanol?

To prepare 100ml of 70% Ethanol, measure 70ml of 95% ethyl alcohol in a graduated cylinder and add 30ml of distilled water. To prepare 100ml of 70% Ethanol, measure 70ml of 95% ethyl alcohol in a graduated cylinder and add 30ml of distilled water.

### What volume of ethanol 96 percent should be added to 500 ml of 70 percent ethanol such that when the mix is made to 2.5l with water the final conc of ethanol is 55 percent?

First calculate how much ethanol you need in the final solution. 55% X 2.5l = 1.375l Then calculate how much ethanol you already have in the solution. 0.5l X 70% = 0.35l Now take the difference between those two numbers as the extra amount needed. 1.375l - 0.35l = 1.025l Now correct for the fact that you are adding only 96% ethanol. 1.025l / 96% = 1.068l Answer: 1.068l

### Why 70 percenet is used instead of 100 percent as disinfectant?

Disinfectants are usually mostly alcohol, Ethanol to be exact. Ethanol can only reach a purity degree of 95-96 percent in liquid form, with purer solutions existing only as a gas. 70 percent alcohol is sufficient to kill the bacteria, and a higher purity would not have any beneficial effect.

If you submerge bed bugs in 70% ETOH solution, it will kill them. However, if you just apply it to a surface, and expect it to kill bed bugs that crawl over it, that won't work. The ethanol will evaporate quickly, and once it's dry, it's not effective in killing much, although it might do an okay job repelling bed bugs for a little while, but ethanol isn't a safe chemical to expose humans to.
