About Isopropanol. 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.
Chemical Formula. C3H8O
Commercial Grades. 91%; 95%; anhydrous/National Formulary (NF, 99%); and nanograde.
Uses. The main applications of Isopropyl Alcohol are as chemical intermediate and as solvent in the manufacturing of cements, primers, paints, varnishes, skin cleaners, perfumes, lotions, shampoos, and deodorants. It is also used as disinfectant and antiseptic.
- Propylene (direct hydration)
- Propylene + sulfuric acid (indirect hydration)
- Acetone (hydrogenation)
