Application

2-Propanol (Isopropanol, Isopropyl alcohol) has been employed for RNA extraction in various studies.

2-propanol may be used in the synthesis of methyl isobutyl ketone with satisfactory yield in the presence of bifunctional Cu-base catalysts. It can undergo oxidation in the presence of titanium oxide-supported manganese oxide to form acetone. IPA may also be used as a solvent to synthesize cyclic ureas by reacting CO2 with diamines in the presence of pure cerium oxide.

General description

2-Propanol is a secondary alcohol. It has been tested as a substitute fuel for use in various fuel cells. CuO powder dissolved in 2-propanol has been used for the laser ablation assisted synthesis of Cu colloids. Suspension of 2-propanol with Zn(NO3)2 has been employed for the fabrication of titanium dioxide-coated stainless steel (P25-TiO2/SS) photoanode coated with a uniformly thick layer of P25-TiO2. This photoanode was used for the electrochemical photocatalytic (ECPC) degradation process.
