Isopropyl Alcohol Uses

Isopropyl alcohol is a multi-purpose alcohol product with a wide range of uses in cleaning, cosmetics and hospitals. It can even also be used at home as a rubbing alcohol for cleaning surfaces and preventing stains.

The various uses of isopropyl alcohol include:

  • As a solvent for coatings and industrial processes
  • As an intermediate ingredient creating isopropyl acetate
  • As an ingredient in medical and self-care products such as hand sanitiser and disinfecting wipes
  • As an ingredient in ‘gas dryer’ fuel additives in the automotive industry
  • In the home as a cleaning agent, stain remover, defroster and as a safer insect repellent.

Properties of Isopropyl Alcohol

Isopropyl alcohol is a compound with the formula C3H8O. Its structural formula can be written as CH3CHOCH3, to make it easier to understand. This alcohol forms a colourless flammable solution with a strong characteristic odour.

Isopropyl alcohol has a molecular/molar mass of 60.1, and a density of 0.786 20kg/m3.

‘Can You Drink Isopropyl Alcohol?’ – Risks & Hazards

Isopropyl alcohol (or rubbing alcohol) is an entirely different chemical to drinking alcohol and therefore should not be consumed. Problems caused by drinking isopropyl include headaches and dizziness, nausea and vomiting and in some cases, death. Overdoses can be identified by the acetone-like fruity odour on the breath.

Another concern about this compound is its flammability. In practical terms, isopropyl alcohol is denser than air and is flammable between 2 and 13% in air. It can also form peroxides, which may explode in high concentrations.

For these reasons isopropyl alcohol should be stored in a well ventilated space, away from any open flames or heat sources. Safe handling procedures must be followed at all times when handling this compound, with protective clothing being worn at all times.
