# Propan 2 ol Formula

## What is Propan 2 ol Formula?

The chemical formula for propan 2 ol is the C$_{3}$H$_{8}$O. Propan 2 ol is a colourless flammable liquid, They have a disinfectant property so they are widely used as antiseptic. Propan 2 ol has an isomer property of 1-propanal. The Propan 2 ol are widely used in manufacturing medicines, dye solutions, window cleaners, cosmetics, lacquer formulations, anti-freezes, and soaps. Further, about 70% of the propan 2 ol are sold in an aqueous state as rubbing alcohol. Propan 2 Ol (C$_{3}$H$_{8}$O) can convert into viscous solution when decreasing the temperature of propan 2 ol and freezes at  −89 °C.

## Structure of Propan 2 ol

The structure of propan 2 ol is formed by combining an isopropyl group with a hydroxyl group. Isopropyl alcohol is the best example of secondary alcohol. As the carbon atom with alcohol is attached to two other carbon atoms. The structure of propan 2 ol is an isomer of 1 propanol and ethyl methyl ether.

The molecular weight of isopropyl alcohol is about 60.096 g mol$^{-1}$. The density of this aqueous solution is about 0.786 g/cm$^{3}$ (20 $^{0}$C). Further, the boiling point of isopropyl alcohol is 82.6 $^{0}$C and the melting point is about −89 $^{0}$C

The above image shows the alcohol group OH combined with the carbon atom, which is connected with the other two carbon atoms.

### 2 Methyl Propan 2 ol Structure

The chemical formula of 2 Methyl propan 2 ol is C$_{4}$H$_{10}$O.  The IUPAC name of tetra- butyl alcohol is 2 Methyl Propan 2 ol. The 2 Methyl Propan 2 ol is a primary (1$^{0}$) alcohol. They have a three-carbon chain, with the OH group and a methyl group carbon are at the middle of the polymerase. The density of the tetra butyl alcohol is about 781 kg/m$^{3}$.

### 2 Methyl Propan 1 ol Structure

The IUPAC name of Isobutanol is the  2 Methyl Propan 1 ol. They also belong to the class of organic compounds known as primary alcohols. The formula for 2 methyl propan 1 ol is (CH$_{3}$)$_{2}$CHCH$_{2}$OH. The 1 methyl propan 1 ol is the colourless, flammable liquid with a characteristic smell. They are mainly used as a solvent either directly or as its esters. Isobutanol has comparatively less toxic than butanols with an LD$_{50}$.
