ExxonMobil™ isopropyl alcohol (IPA) is a clear, colorless and volatile material with a light odor. It possesses physico-chemical and solvency properties similar to those of ethyl alcohol, making it completely miscible with water and soluble in most organic solvents. ExxonMobil Chemical has been a long-term supplier of specialty IPA grades.
ExxonMobil IPA is produced by the indirect hydration of propylene in a multistage process that offers very high product purity and consistent quality. Diisopropyl ether (IPE) is also produced as a byproduct of this IPA production process. The on-site availability of propylene provides IPA customers with a greater level of supply reliability.
