Isopropyl Alcohol (a.k.a. Isopropanol, 2-Propanol) is a colorless and flammable liquid with a strong odor. Isopropyl alcohol was one of the first petrochemical products to be manufactured - it has been produced since 1920. At this time, Isopropanol was generated through the indirect hydration of propylene, a process that uses sulfuric acid to react with propylene and generate a compound that will react with water to produce Isopropanol. Today, it is one of the most produced lower alcohols (C1 to C5 alcohols), the third in commercial production, behind methanol and ethanol.
