The article presents information on isopropanol (IPA), a solvent with outlets in cosmetics and personal care products, de-icers, paints and resins, pharmaceuticals, food, inks and adhesives. IPA is also used in oil and gums, and to make fishmeal concentrates. Low-grade IPA is used in motor oils. Some chemical compounds are made from IPA such as methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK), isopropylamines and isopropyl esters. Different grades are available.
