AbstractExperiments were conducted to assess the extent of interaction of methanol with calcium hydroxide at 22 degrees C. The following techniques were used: X-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, surface-area determination, length change, calorimetry, differential thermal analysis and thermogravimetric analysis. It was concluded that either calcium methoxide or a methylated complex is formed when calcium hydroxide is mixed with methanol.
