Isopropyl alcohol (2-propanol) is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C3H8O or C3H7OH or CH3CHOHCH3. It is a colourless, flammable chemical compound with a strong odor. It is the simplest example of a secondary alcohol, where the alcohol carbon atom is attached to two other carbon atoms sometimes shown as (CH3)2CHOH. It is a structural isomer of propanol.

The vast majority of isopropanol is still used in industrial settings, both as a solvent and as an intermediate. This compound is also a popular ingredient in many disinfectant and personal care products, but household applications represent only a small fraction of overall isopropanol production. Isopropanol can dissolve a wide range of non-polar products. It evaporates quickly leaving no residue and it’s relatively non-toxic when compared to ethanol or other alternative solvents which make it an ideal product to use as a cleaning solution and for disolving oils. It can also be used for cleaning delicate parts during manufacture of electric and electronic devices, and stain removal in various products, such as fabrics, cotton and wood.
