# What is the standard state of methanol?

The standard state is the phase you see for the substance at room temperature and pressure, ${25}^{\circ} \text{C}$, and either $\text{1 atm}$ or $\text{1 bar}$, depending on your textbook.
For methanol, it's a liquid under these conditions. Its boiling point is higher than ${25}^{\circ} \text{C}$, and its melting point is negative.
