What is ethanol?

Ethanol is also called ethyl alcohol. It is a simple alcohol that is produced when yeast cells ferment sugar and is also created during the hydration of ethene – a gas derived from crude oil. Ethanol is a commonly used as an ingredient in alcoholic drinks, as an automobile fuel additive, in cosmetics and perfumes and is also an antiseptic.

What is isopropyl alcohol?

Isopropyl alcohol or IPA is a much stronger liquid produced from the hydration of propene, which is also derived from fossil fuels. IPA is commonly used in cleaning products for both households and industries alike as it offers excellent disinfectant properties.

What is the difference between ethyl alcohol and isopropyl alcohol?

The main difference between IPA and ethanol alcohol is, in fact, one atom. Ethanol has two carbon atoms while IPA has three.

Ethanol can be ingested, hence why it is safely used in alcoholic beverages whereas IPA is toxic. However, both are really effective cleaning agents and can be used when creating hand sanitizers and other disinfectants. In the market, ethyl alcohol is more commonly used for alcohol, fragrances, cosmetics, and as a fuel additive whereas IPA is more commonly used in cleaning products and industrial products.

At ACS, we sell ethanol to customers who manufacture products for hand sanitizing, personal care and perfumes. We also sell industrial ethanol for customers who manufacture industrial cleaning agents.
