Isopropyl alcohol does not cause an anion gap acidosis, but it produces an osmolal gap between the calculated and measured osmolalities of serum, as do the other alcohols.  The findings of acetone without acidosis leads to the sine qua non of "ketosis without acidosis." Isopropyl alcohol is esterified to give isopropyl acetate, another solvent. It reacts with carbon disulfide and sodium hydroxide to give sodium isopropylxanthate, a herbicide and an ore flotation reagent.  Isopropyl alcohol reacts with titanium tetrachloride and aluminium metal to give titanium and aluminium isopropoxides, respectively, the former a catalyst, and the latter a chemical reagent.  This compound may serve as a chemical reagent in itself, by acting as a dihydrogen donor in transfer hydrogenation. Isopropyl alcohol has a maximal absorbance at 205nm in an ultraviolet- visible spectrum.   Reactions [ edit ]Dihydroergolines (e.g., dihydroergocryptine, dihydroergosine, dihydroergotamine, ergoloid (dihydroergotoxine)) There are two routes for the hydration process and both processes require that the isopropyl alcohol be separated from water and other by-products by distillation. Isopropyl alcohol and water form an azeotrope, and simple distillation gives a material that is 87.9% by mass isopropyl alcohol and 12.1% by mass water.  Pure ( anhydrous) isopropyl alcohol is made by azeotropic distillation of the wet isopropyl alcohol using either diisopropyl ether or cyclohexane as azeotroping agents.  Biological [ edit ] Isopropyl alcohol is used as an additive in alkaline anisotropic etching of monocrystalline silicon, such as with potassium hydroxide or tetramethylammonium hydroxide. This process used in texturing of silicon solar cells and microfabrication (eg. in MEMS devices). Isopropyl alcohol increases the anisotropy of the etch by increasing the etch rate of  plane relative to higher indexed planes.  Safety [ edit ]
As a biological specimen preservative, isopropyl alcohol provides a comparatively non-toxic alternative to formaldehyde and other synthetic preservatives. Isopropyl alcohol solutions of 70–99% are used to preserve specimens. From mobile phones and laptops to gaming devices and tablets, electronics form a large part of our lives. But, despite our frequent interaction with our electronics, they’re often forgotten when it comes to cleaning. Uses [ edit ] One of the small scale uses of isopropanol is in cloud chambers. Isopropanol has ideal physical and chemical properties to form a supersaturated layer of vapor which can be condensed by particles of radiation.a b c d e Slaughter RJ, Mason RW, Beasley DM, Vale JA, Schep LJ (2014).
