Description of key information

5% mass solution in water (at 20C): 56.4mN/m

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Published experimental data on ethanol indicates that the surface tension of a solution of ethanol in water at a concentration of 1g/l will be similar to that of pure water. Ethanol does not therefore have surface active properties.
