  • Description
  • Application
Brief Overview

 Isopropyl Alcohol, also known as IPA is a clear, colorless liquid with a characteristic acetone-like odor. It is an organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CH(OH) and boiling point 82.5 °C. IPA is highly inflammable under high pressure. Therefore, it is used under good ventilation and away ignition sources.

 

Manufacturing Process

 Isopropyl alcohol can be manufactured by two processes:

1. Direct Hydration: It is a single step process in which propene reacts with water at high pressure in the presence of some acidic catalyst to form isopropyl alcohol.  

2. Indirect Hydration: It is a two steps process. Firstly, propene reacts with sulfuric acid to form a mixture of sulphate esters. Then, the esters undergo hydrolysis to form isopropyl alcohol. 



Solvent

Isopropyl alcohol is mainly used as a solvent for coating industry or for various other industrial process. It can dissolved a large number of compounds, evaporates quickly and is non-toxic compared to other solvents. Dry acrylic paint is difficult to remove from solid surface so IPA is used to clean paint, other oil based products, electronic items such as lenses of laser, floppy disc etc. 

 

Other applications

Isopropyl alcohol is used in purification processes of organic materials in pharmaceutical products. It is also used as a gasoline additive. It is even used in personal care products.
