Ethanol is one of the most ubiquitous chemical compounds in the history of the chemical
sciences. The generation of alcohol via fermentation is also one of the oldest forms of chemical
technology, with the production of fermented beverages such as beer and wine. Dr. Rasmussen
will present a general overview of the early history and chemistry of alcohol production and
isolation, as well as its early uses in both the chemical arts and medicine.
