The role and use of isopropyl alcohol

1. Widely used as an organic raw material and solvent. As a chemical raw material, acetone, hydrogen peroxide, methyl isobutyl ketone, diisobutyl ketone, isopropylamine, isopropyl ether, isopropyl alcohol ether, isopropyl chloride, and fatty acid isopropyl ester and chlorine can be produced. On behalf of fatty acid isopropyl ester and so on. In the field of fine chemicals, it can be used to produce isopropyl nitrate, isopropyl xanthate, triisopropyl phosphite, aluminum triisopropoxide, and pharmaceuticals and pesticides. As a solvent, it can be used to produce coatings, inks, extractants, aerosols, and the like. It can also be used as an antifreeze, cleaner, additive for blending gasoline, dispersant for pigment production, fixative for printing and dyeing industry, antifogging agent for glass and transparent plastic, etc. Diluents used as adhesives, but also for antifreeze, dehydration agents.
2. Determination of reagents such as barium, calcium, copper, magnesium, nickel, potassium, sodium, strontium, nitrous acid, cobalt, and the like. Chromatography standards. As a chemical raw material, acetone, hydrogen peroxide, methyl isobutyl ketone, diisobutyl ketone, isopropylamine, isopropyl ether, isopropyl alcohol ether, isopropyl chloride, and fatty acid isopropyl ester and chlorine can be produced. On behalf of fatty acid isopropyl ester and so on. In the field of fine chemicals, it can be used to produce isopropyl nitrate, isopropyl xanthogenate, triisopropyl phosphite, aluminum triisopropoxide, and pharmaceuticals and pesticides.

It can also be used as an antifreeze, cleaner, additive for blending gasoline, dispersant for pigment production, fixing agent for printing and dyeing industry, antifogging agent for glass and transparent plastic, etc.
3. It is used as a defoamer for oil well fracturing fluids. Air forms an explosive mixture. It causes combustion explosions when exposed to fire or high heat. It can react with oxidants. Its vapour is heavier than air, and it can spread to quite a place in the lower part of the country. In case of high heat, the internal pressure of the container increases, causing cracking and explosion.
4. Isopropyl alcohol is used as cleaning and oil removing agent. MOS grade is mainly used for discrete devices and medium and large scale integrated circuits. BV-III grade is mainly used for VLSI process.
5. For the electronics industry, can be used as a cleaning oil remover.
6. Diluents used as adhesives, cottonseed oil extractants, nitrocellulose, rubber, coatings, shellac, alkaloids, oils and other solvents. It is also used in antifreeze, dehydrating agents, antiseptics, anti-fogging agents, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, spices, printing industry, cosmetics and organic synthesis.
7. It is a relatively cheap solvent in industry and has a wide range of uses. It can be freely mixed with water, and its solvency to lipophilic substances is stronger than that of ethanol.
8. For the production of diisopropyl acetone, isopropyl acetate and thymol and gasoline additives.
9. It can be used for degreasing of animal-derived tissue membranes.
