The planet begins to scream for help through devastating natural phenomena and climate change. The man witnesses the emergence of new diseases, no effective drugs, super bacteria’s, and his vulnerability to life. This is the status of man and his world. So, the man starts to look more towards his health, quality of life and everything that surrounds him. In this context, one of the contributions of the chemical-pharmaceutical analyst to the evolution of his friendship with the environment and his own well-being is the use of less toxic reagents, such as ethanol on HPLC. HPLC is one of the most modern and most used techniques in analyzing products, impurities and degradation products. Ethanol is derived from renewable and biodegradable sources and ethanol residues are easily removed without the need for incineration. So why not link these two and then use ethanol on HPLC? Would that be an epiphany or nonsense?
