Hangover Series #1

Hangover Series #1

The Chemistry Behind It’s not simply the price you pay for a night out drinking with friends…

Firstly, let’s observe the process of your alcohol intake until it is washed out from your body. Alcohol, a.k.a. Ethanol, is converted to Ethanal and then to Ethanoate by the respective enzymes. At its final stage, Ethanoate or acetate is broken down into our dear friend’s carbon dioxide and water, ready to be eliminated from our bodies. It is the work of our beloved liver to break down alcohol at 8 grams or 10 ml of pure alcohol every hour. So, where is the hangover coming from?


Stay tuned for HANGOVER SERIES #2!
