Studies carried out with glass electrode in anhydrous ethanol and ethanol-water solutions for measuring pH values have shown that this parameter depends on the solution composition, the contact time with the solution, the utilized temperature, and the type of electrolyte used. It was also observed that the glass electrode behavior in an acid medium differs from an alkaline medium. These studies provided correction factors for pH values from 2 to 12, allowing the realization of proper measurements of the hydrogen ionic activity in the ethanol-water and anhydrous ethanol solutions. However, these correction factors could not be applied to the fuel ethanol. Alternatively, a new method was developed for the correction of the pH values, which can be applied in hydrous and anhydrous fuel ethanol samples. Copyright © 2011 by ASTM International.

Beyond the "First Hit": Marked Inhibition by N-Acetyl Cysteine of Chronic Ethanol Intake But Not of Early Ethanol Intake. Parallel Effects on Ethanol-Induced Saccharin Motivation Quintanilla González, María Elena; Rivera Meza, Mario; Berríos Cárcamo, Pablo; Salinas Luypaert, Catalina; Herrera-Marschitz Muller, Mario; Israel Jacard, Yedy (Wiley-Blackwell, 2016)Background: A number of studies have shown that acetaldehyde synthesized in the brain is necessary to induce ethanol (EtOH) reinforcement in naive animals (acquisition phase). However, after chronic intake is achieved ...
Ethanol pre-exposure during adolescence or adulthood increases ethanol intake but ethanol-induced conditioned place preference is enhanced only when pre-exposure occurs in adolescence Nascimento, Priscila Fernandes Carrara do; Olive, M. Foster; Camarini, Rosana (Wiley InterscienceNew York, 2014-01)Behavioral sensitization has been suggested to contribute to uncontrolled alcohol consumption. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of repeated ethanol administration in adolescent and adult mice on subsequent ...
Prenatal ethanol increases ethanol intake throughout adolescence, alters ethanol-mediated aversive learning, and affects μ but not δ or κ opioid receptor mRNA expression Fabio, Maria Carolina; Macchione, Ana Fabiola; Nizhnikov, Michael E.; Pautassi, Ricardo Marcos (Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2015-04)Animal models of prenatal ethanol exposure (PEE) have indicated a facilitatory effect of PEE on adolescent ethanol intake, but few studies have assessed the effects of moderate PEE throughout adolescence.
