Propanol (a.k.a. n-Propanol, 1-Propanol) is a primary alcohol with the formula C3H7OH. It appears as a clear, colorless, flammable liquid with a slight odor resembling that of ethanol. It is soluble in water and in a variety of organic solvents. Propanol occurs in nature in crude fusel oils and as fermentation and decomposition products of various vegetables. Industrially, it is produced by hydroformilation of ethylene to propionaldehyde, which is then hydrogenated to Propanol. It is used in cosmetics, hair and skin preparations, pharmaceuticals, perfumes, lacquer formulations, antifreezes, window cleaners, dye solutions, rubbing alcohols, soaps, acetone and others.
