Isopropyl alcohol is primarily synthesized using a direct or indirect process of hydrating propene with water. Both methods involve a further purification technique of distilling the isopropyl alcohol from water and ot... More »

Isopropyl alcohol, like all alcohols, is polar. It is polar because one of the properties of alcohol is hydroxyl, which forms hydrogen bonds and dissolves water molecules. Hydroxyl groups make electrons spend more time n... More »

The intermolecular forces between molecules of isopropyl alcohol are in the form of hydrogen bonds, where a partially positive hydrogen atom of one molecule experiences a strong attractive force to a partially negative o... More »

Isopropyl alcohol is amphiprotic, meaning that it can act as both a weak acid and a weak base. Chemically, it can donate or accept a proton. This is a characteristic that is shared with water. More »

The boiling point of isopropyl alcohol is 180.5 F, or 82.5 C. Isopropyl is primarily created by combining water and propene in a hydration reaction, but it can also be produced by hydrogenating acetone. Isopropyl alcohol... More »

Material safety data sheet facts about isopropyl alcohol include that it is flammable, and inhaling the vapors can cause dizziness, drowsiness, lung damage and death, according to Fisher Scientific. Isopropyl alcohol tar... More »
