The standard state of ethanol is the liquid state.


The standard state of a material is its state at 1 bar (100 kPa).

The standard state can be defined at any temperature, but chemists generally use 25 °C.

Ethanol melts at -114 °C and boils at 78 °C, so ethanol is a liquid in its standard state.
