Market Synopsis

Isopropyl Alcohol, commonly known as isopropanol, is a colorless, flammable liquid with a strong alcoholic odor. The product is completely soluble in water, ethanol, ether, and chloroform. It can be synthesized by combining water and propene in a hydration reaction or through the hydrogenation of acetone. Isopropanol is mainly used in the pharmaceuticals industry to manufacture products such as hand sanitizers, disinfecting pads, oral mouthwashes, and ear drops due to its low toxicity. The product is widely used as an antiseptic to clean the skin before injections. In addition, isopropanol is used as a solvent in various chemical reactions, a coupling agent in cleaners and polishes, a dehydrating agent, and as a cleaning liquid in many household products. Also, the product finds application in laboratories as a preservative for biological specimens and in DNA extraction.

Moreover, isopropanol is used in the automotive industry as a major ingredient in gas dryer fuel additives.
