General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product is biorenewable and thus it aligns with "Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries" and "Use of Renewable Feedstocks". Click here  for more information. This ReagentPlus® grade 2-propanol is a drop-in replacement for any 2-propanol application. Made from 78.0% renewable carbon (verified through C14 ASTM D6866-16 testing) and produced in an environmentally friendly way that reduces the carbon footprint of production and reliance on fossil fuels. Because it is not from petroleum, it is free from many non-renewable contaminants, such as benzene, phthalates, and other phenols, leading to a higher quality product.


Isopropanol can be used in different applications such as:
  • Solvent in organic synthesis
  • Chemical intermediate
  • Disinfectant
  • Antibacterial properties
  • Sample preservative

Features and Benefits

  • Renewable Carbon Content >78.0%
  • ASTM D6866 - Standard Test Methods for Determining the Biobased Content
  • Made from Renewable Resource - corn waste
  • Replacement for Petroleum-based 2-Propanol

  1. What is a BioRenewable solvent?

    BioRenewable solvents are sourced from renewable and sustainable biobased materials, such as soy/palm oil, wood waste, hay or corn byproducts, etc. It is important to highlight that our BioRenewable products do not compete with food production.

  2. Why should you use BioRenewable solvents?

    You will contribute to create a sustainable world, significantly lowering environmental impact. Biorenewable solvents also decrease petroleum sources dependency, have higher recovery rates, and/or are safer for handling and disposal.

  3. Do BioRenewable solvents have a similar quality to petroleum-based solvents?

    BioRenewable solvents can have the same or higher purity level compared to traditional solvents. These solvents are free of the many byproducts of petroleum manufacturing, such as benzene, aldehydes, and ethers.
