The main applications of Isopropyl Alcohol are as solvent and intermediate in the production of chemicals. The use of Isopropanol as solvent is leveraged by its low cost and by the absence of taxes and regulations that typically apply to ethanol, which is a competitor in many applications. In industry, Isopropanol is used as solvent for instance in the manufacturing of cements, primers, paints and varnishes. Some examples of the use of Isopropanol as solvent in consumer products include skin cleaners, perfumes, lotions, shampoos and deodorants. Another use of Isopropanol is as disinfectant. Being much more effective than ethanol, is widely used as disinfectant and antiseptic for industry, hospital and home.

Isopropyl Alcohol (a.k.a. Isopropanol, 2-Propanol) is a colorless and flammable liquid with a strong odor that is widely employed in solvent applications. Isopropyl alcohol was one of the first petrochemical products to be manufactured - it has been produced since 1920. Today, it is one of the most produced lower alcohols (C1 to C5 alcohols), the third in commercial production, behind methanol and ethanol.
