What is isopropyl alcohol?
Isopropyl alcohol, which is one of the isomers of alcohol and is also known by the brand name Alcojel, is a chemical compound, colorless, with a strong odor and high flammability.
Isopropyl alcohol is miscible in water, ethanol and chloroform, and unlike ethanol and methanol, it is not miscible with salt solutions, and it can be separated from aqueous solutions by adding a salt such as sodium chloride.
Like many alcohols, isopropyl alcohol reacts with active metals such as potassium to form alkoxides, which can be called isoperoxides.
Isopropyl alcohol has antibacterial properties, which is why it is used in the manufacture of various soaps and disinfectants.
Isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol) is the first synthetic alcohol produced, which is also referred to as the first petrochemical product.
Isopropyl alcohol is the simplest example of secondary alcohols. This alcohol is miscible in water, ethanol, ether and chloroform. Isopropyl alcohol dissolves a wide range of non-polar compounds. For this reason, it is used as a solvent in industries.
The low boiling point and high evaporation rate is another important feature of this substance, which makes the use of isopropyl alcohol in disinfectant solutions cause less damage to the skin than methanol.
Due to its special physical and chemical properties, it is used in a wide range of industries.
Among the applications of this sieve, industries such as automobile manufacturing, medicine, etc. can be mentioned.
Other uses of isopropyl alcohol:
1) Production of household, hospital and industrial disinfectants
2) Application as antifreeze due to low freezing point
3) Use as a solvent in cosmetics, deodorants and lotions...
4) Use as a solvent in the printing industry
5) Use as a biological preservative and a relatively non-toxic substitute for formaldehyde
In addition to the mentioned items, it is possible to mention the household uses of isopropyl alcohol, such as cleaning rusty sinks, removing labels, eliminating the smell of shoes, etc.
Due to the high level of flammability and rapid evaporation of isopropanol, it is recommended to keep it in a cool, well-ventilated environment away from heat and direct flame.
Contact of isopropyl alcohol with coatings, rubbers and plastics causes them to corrode. Also, eating and drinking this substance causes serious damage to the digestive system. Inhalation of vapors caused by isopropyl alcohol causes drowsiness and dizziness and damages the respiratory system and eyes.
Long-term use of disinfectants and cosmetics containing isopropyl alcohol causes dryness and cracking of the skin.
