Why cough syrups contains alcohols?
Asked by Vaibhav Shrotriya | 1st Jan, 2012, 12:00: AM
Alcohol is most often used in cough syrups because it is an excellent solvent, in some ways better than water for keeping the other ingredients dissolved in the proper liquid form. Preparations made with alcohol will keep almost indefinitely while made with water will not.
