Methanol is the simplest alcohol containing one carbon. It has a boiling point of 64.7 °C  and a freezing point of -97.8°C. 

Methanol is commonly used as a solvent. It is used to manufacture an array of products, including but not limited to resins, adhesives, dyes, inks, and pharmaceuticals.  With the lower temperature to evaporate the solvent the extract is less damaged.  

It can also be used as an antifreeze when added to a water-based liquid since it increases the freezing point and the boiling point.
