Isopropyl Alcohol, 5 Gal, ACS For Sale
Our isopropyl alcohol, ACS USP/NF Reagent Grade, is a chemical grade of the highest purity that complies with all necessary lab criteria and meets or surpasses the purity standards established by the American Chemical Society (ACS).
It is a fantastic option for applications that need a clean and controlled environment because of the high purity. This is due to the possibility of contamination or residue left by contaminants in lower-grade isopropyl alcohol impairing the performance of precision instruments, lab apparatus, and electronic components.
Isopropyl alcohol of the reagent grade is used for cleaning laboratory equipment. Isopropyl alcohol of the ACS grade is frequently used to clean lab glassware, equipment, and surfaces. It is perfect for maintaining a sterile lab environment because of its high purity level, which guarantees that no contaminants or residues are left behind after cleaning.
Proteins can be precipitated out of a solution by adding isopropyl alcohol to it. This causes the proteins to clump together, which makes it simpler to remove the proteins from the solution.
Processing of tissue samples: In histology and pathology labs, isopropyl alcohol is frequently used to process tissue samples. It is used to dehydrate tissues so they can be sectioned and stained before being embedded in paraffin wax.
Chromatography: Paper chromatography and thin-layer chromatography both employ the use of extremely pure isopropyl alcohol as a solvent. Due to its high level of purity, it is guaranteed that no impurities will prevent the sample’s components from being separated.
Isopropyl alcohol has a powerful but not offensive odour and is colourless. It has a very broad combustion range and is very flammable. Avoid exposing it to heat and open flame.
