About Isopropyl Alcohol
Isopropyl Alcohol (C3H8O), also known as Isopropanol and commonly sold in stores as rubbing alcohol is a colorless, flammable liquid, that is volatile, easily turns into a vapor with a mild odor, and can be mildly irritating to the eyes, nose and throat.
Isopropyl Alcohol is an essential component of many cosmetics, used as a disinfectant in medical facilities and homes, and widely used as a solvent in chemical industries. It is commonly manufactured by direct and indirect hydration (a reaction with water) of propylene, C3H6.
Compared to other common solvents and alcohols isopropyl alcohol has relatively low toxicity.
