About - Isopropyl Alcohol
Isopropyl alcohol or isopropanol, also known as "rubbing alcohol" is a commonly used chemical in most labs. It is used in various household chemicals and is also commonly used in antiseptics, disinfectants, and detergents, depending on its concentration.
It is called rubbing alcohol as it is used in hand sanitizers and disinfectant pads which usually have a solution of around 70% isopropanol in water. It is also used as a water drying agent to prevent swimmer’s ear.
Isopropyl alcohol is also used to preserve specimens as an alternative to formaldehyde, as it is relatively less toxic than formaldehyde. For preserving the specimen, a solution of 80-90% isopropyl alcohol is used.
It is also used in DNA extraction as DNA is insoluble in isopropyl alcohol.
Though there are many uses of Isopropanol, it is flammable and should be kept away from heat and fire. Direct contact to the eye can cause irritation and medical attention should be given immediately in case irritation does not subside. Wearing protective equipment such as gloves and protective glasses is strongly advised.
Although it is less toxic than methanol isopropyl alcohol is more toxic than ethanol.
