Iso Propyl Alchol
Rubbing alcohol is the common name for the molecule isopropyl alcohol. This chemical is very closely related to the familiar substance ethanol, or drinking alcohol, which is found in beer, wine and hard liquor. Unlike drinking alcohol, rubbing alcohol is not suitable for human consumption. It does, however, possess many of ethanolâs chemical properties. For instance, like ethanol, itâs soluble in water and it has a low boiling point. Rubbing alcoholâs chemical properties give it utility in many household applications.
