Isopropyl alcohol (IPA), also known as Isopropanol, is a clear, colorless liquid, possessing an alcoholic odor. It is a medium evaporating low-cost solvent, possessing complete miscibility with most solvents. Based on applications, IPA has several grades specially selected on the basis of purity and odor. It has proven microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-infectant properties making it suitable to be used in the cosmetics and toiletries. It is also widely used as a low-cost solvent in many industries such as pharmaceuticals, coatings and inks, specialty chemicals and as an extractant. Some important chemical derivatives manufactured from IPA include methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK), isopropylamines and isopropyl esters. IPA can be produced either from Propylene, as a by-product from the operations of a naphtha cracker, from acetone, or as a by-product from producing phenol. Two main routes are used to produce IPA commercially. The traditional method involves indirect hydration of refinery-grade propylene (RGP) using sulfuric acid to form isopropyl sulfate, which is then hydrolyzed with steam to form sulfuric acid and IPA. Another route is the direct hydration of chemical grade (90-99%) Propylene, without using sulfuric acid. Small amount of IPA is also produced by the hydrogenation of Acetone in aqueous medium. However, this process is only suitable where excess Acetone is available.
