Formalin 37%

Formaldehyde or methanol is a compound of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen with
  chemical formula is HCHO or CH2O. Besides being the simplest aldehyde, it is
  produced by the catalytic oxidation of methanol (methyl alcohol).

At room temperature, formaldehyde is a colorless gas with a pungent odor that is readily

  soluble in water. Aqueous solutions containing 30 to 50 percent formaldehyde are

known as Formol or formalin, which is a colorless liquid with a pungent, suffocating


odor; such solutions usually contain methanol as a stabilizer.

  - Some aldehydes are broadly effective against bacteria, fungi, microbacteria, spores    and viruses. Formol or formalin is an approximate 37 to 40% by weight solution of    formaldehyde in water, usually with 10 to 15% methanol added to prevent    polymerization. Formalin solutions containing formaldehyde concentrations equal to or    higher than 5% are a widely used, effective liquid disinfectant.
- They are used for the sterilization of heat-sensitive objects, such as cystoscopes,    laparoscopes, blood-stained instruments and hemodialysis instruments.
- Used in its gaseous form and in closed chambers, formaldehyde is applied to hospital    sterilization as well as to the pharmaceutical industry. Likewise, it is widely used as an    environmental disinfectant of highly contaminated rooms which must be aired once    they have been treated.
