Isopropyl alcohol, commonly known as rubbing alcohol, is a clear, colorless, and flammable liquid with a strong odor. It is a type of alcohol with the chemical formula C3H8O and is composed of three carbon atoms, eight hydrogen atoms, and one oxygen atom.

Isopropyl alcohol is commonly found in concentrations ranging from 70% to 99% purity, with 100% purity indicating absolute or anhydrous isopropyl alcohol. The term "anhydrous" means that the alcohol does not contain any water, making it more potent and suitable for certain applications.

Characteristics of 100% Isopropyl Alcohol:

  1. Disinfectant and Antiseptic: 100% isopropyl alcohol is a powerful disinfectant and antiseptic agent. It is commonly used to clean and disinfect surfaces, medical equipment, and skin before injections or minor surgical procedures.

  2. Evaporation Rate: Isopropyl alcohol has a rapid evaporation rate, which makes it effective for cleaning applications where quick drying is necessary.

  3. Solvent Properties: Due to its ability to dissolve a wide range of substances, 100% isopropyl alcohol is commonly used as a solvent for removing oils, greases, and other contaminants from various surfaces.

  4. Cooling Effect: When applied to the skin, isopropyl alcohol causes a cooling sensation due to its quick evaporation, making it useful for fever reduction and temporary relief from minor muscle aches and pains.

  5. Flammability: Isopropyl alcohol is highly flammable, and care must be taken when handling it to avoid accidents or fire hazards.

  6. Use in Laboratories: 100% isopropyl alcohol is commonly used in laboratories for cleaning and sanitizing equipment and surfaces, particularly those that cannot tolerate water.

  7. Not for Ingestion: It is important to note that 100% isopropyl alcohol is toxic and should never be ingested. It is strictly meant for external use only.

Caution: When using 100% isopropyl alcohol or any alcohol-based products, it is essential to take proper safety precautions. Avoid contact with eyes, open flames, and excessive inhalation.
