Formalin Solution (Formaldehyde Solution)

Formalin is a 37% aqueous solution of formaldehyde. Stabilizers, such as methanol, is also added to it in a small amount to restrain the process of oxidation and polymerization. It is widely used as an antiseptic to sterilize the surgical instruments. Other applications of formalin include its usage in the preservation of biological specimen and as a disinfectant. Additionally, it finds application as embalming chemicals. Embalming chemicals are a variety of preservatives, sanitizing and disinfectant agents, and additives used in modern embalming. This process is carried out to temporarily prevent decomposition so that natural appearance can be restored for viewing a body after death. These chemicals when mixed together forms an embalming fluid and is used to preserve the bodies of the diseased individual for both funeral purposes and medical research. A typical embalming fluid consists of formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, methanol, and other solvents. The formaldehyde content in the fluid varies from 5 to 37 percent and the methanol content ranges from 9 to 56 percent.
