  • Formalin is a saturated solution of formaldehyde, water, and typically another agent, most commonly methanol. In its typical form, formalin is 37% formaldehyde by weight (40% by volume), 6-13% methanol, and the rest water. A quick glance at any commercially available formalin product will confirm these numbers.
  • Formalin is the aqueous form of formaldehyde produced mostly from methanol by an oxidation process.
  • The two processes known to produce formalin from methanol--methanol excess and air excess. The basic difference between them is the
    catalyst applied. The methanol excess process, called the silver process, employs silver as the catalyst while the air excess process uses metallic oxides of iron and molybdenum.
  • Formalin can be produced on a smaller scale using a whole range of other methods including conversion from ethanol instead of the
    normally-fed methanol feedstock. Such methods are of less commercial importance.
  • Formalin is one of the most widely and frequently used chemicals for treating fish with fungal or ectoparasitic infections.
  • Formalin is a generic term contains a solution of 37% formaldehyde gas dissolved in water. Solutions of formalin for use on fish should
    contain 10 to 15% methanol, which inhibits formation of paraformaldehyde, a highly toxic compound.
  • Formalin is used as a bath treatment to control external parasitic infections of fish. It is extremely effective against most protozoans, as well as some of the larger parasites such as monogenetic trematodes.
  • Formalin is approved by FDA for control of fungi in fish hatcheries. Concentrations of 1000 to 2000 mg/l can be applied to fish eggs for 15
    minutes to aid in control of fungus.
  • Formalin is an excellent parasiticide for use in tanks and aquaria, but its use in ponds is discouraged because it chemically removes oxygen
    from the water and can contribute to catastrophic oxygen depletion under pond conditions. This is avoided in tanks and aquaria by always supplying vigorous aeration when formalin is used.
  • The formalin-tween technique was effective for ascertaining helminths, particularly Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and hookworm
    eggs; however it has less capability for protozoa detection. This method is simple, inexpensive, less time consuming and highly sensitive
    when detecting the parasitic infection, particularly when focusing on helminth eggs.
  • Formalin is used to store biological specimens in laboratories, even preserving human bodies in medical profession known as embalm to prevent the tissues from natural decomposition.
  • The Centre of Indian Consumer Protection and Research (Coinpar), a consumer rights organisation in the city, which tested eight brands of milk available in the market and also milk sold by cycle vendors, has reported the presence of the chemical, formalin, in three samples.
  • The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has cleared the way for the lawful use of formalin in fish culture after nine years of intensive research that proves the compound can be used without harm to fish, consumers, or the environment.
  • Formalin is a liquid formaldehyde solution which is heavily diluted for fish culture use.
