    Intuitively, the amount of benzene or other aromatic benzyl groups in CEE has to be incredibly low...probably about as much as we normally get in our contaminated food supplies. If there are any third party COA's showing elevated levels of benzene in CEE we'd probably be hearing about it as would the FDA and a lot of trial lawyers...

The resulting ethanol is water free, for processes that require it. However, several ppm of benzene remains, so consumption by humans leads to distinctive liver damage. eventhough its a small amount the point was that over time along with other things[beer,advil,other sups]Your headed for liver damage
    I'm no chemist, but what does this have to do with CEE? You can get 190 proof (95%) ethanol without adding benzene.

    I think they use benzene to get the water out of it

    To make CEE you use 200 proof anhydrous ethanol, creatine and purge with HCl gas
    (this is the easiet way). The CEE precipiates as HCl salt and is wash with EtOH and dried.
    They do not add benzene to the acutal reaction. And if food grade ethanol is used benzene
    is not an issue.

    And besides, using benzene to make 200 proof EtOH is not employed as much you think.
    Companies use other techniques due to the regulation of benzene (at least in the states).
