Default drying alcohol



"Dave Muzuno" <[Only registered users see links. ]


--------
Organic Synthesis, Collective Volume 1 pg. 249.

Suggests (if the presence of methyl alcohol is permissible):-

"by dissolving 24g of magnesium turning in 200 cc. of absolute methyl alcohol (the
reaction is vigorous) and then adding 3 l of the ordinary grade of absolute
alcohol (about 99.5 per cent). The mixture is refluxed for about 5 hours
and distilled into a flask in which the absolute alcohol is to be used."

Preparation using sodium and chlorform can be found on page 259 (same volume).
