Isopropyl Alcohol Production Cost Analysis 2020

In appearance, isopropyl alcohol is a colourless, flammable chemical compound with a strong odour. It is the simplest type of a secondary alcohol, where the alcohol carbon atom is linked to two other carbon atoms. It is a structural isomer of 1-propanol as well as ethyl methyl ether.
It is used in the production of a wide variety of commercial and household chemicals and is a common ingredient in chemicals compounds such as antiseptics, disinfectants, and detergents.

Isopropyl alcohol is soluble in water, ethanol, ether, and chloroform. Isopropyl alcohol is not soluble with salt solutions, unlike ethanol or methanol. It can be distinguished from aqueous solutions by adding a salt such as sodium chloride. It is widely manufactured by combining water and propene in a hydration reaction or by hydrogenating acetone. 

Isopropyl alcohol is widely used as a solvent for coatings or for commercial processes. Due to its low toxicity, isopropyl alcohol is popular specifically for pharmaceutical applications. It is used as a chemical intermediate as well. Isopropyl alcohol is an isomer of propyl alcohol that comes with antibacterial properties.
