About Isoamyl Alcohol Analytical Reagent Grade

Isoamyl Alcohol, also known as Isopentyl Alcohol, Isopentanol, or 3-methyl-butan-1-ol, is a colorless liquid having the formula C5H12O. It is one of the numerous amyl alcohol isomers. It is a common fusel alcohol produced as a by-product of the ethanol fermentation process. The Analytical Reagent Grade is generally equivalent to the American Chemical Society (ACS) Grade and is acceptable for use in analytical applications and research laboratories. Lab Alley recommends to use it in research labs for precise, repetitive, and consistent results.
