Strong oxidizer methanol can react with both metals and metal oxides. Salts are created when metals and M interact. Aluminum, copper, iron, lead, nickel, silver, tin, zinc, and zirconium are among the metals that M oxidises most easily.
The skin, eyes, lungs, and digestive system are all harmed by the caustic liquid known as M. Methanol exposure at high levels has the potential to be fatal. M is a respiratory irritant that can also irritate the skin, mouth, nose, throat, and eyes. The inhalation of M vapour may result in headaches, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Powerful solvent M can dissolve a wide range of substances, including waxes, fats, oils, resins, rubber, and cellulose. Paintbrushes, wood, leather, and fabrics are frequently cleaned with M.
