Default Chemical Question

This is a 2 parter so I'll try not to ramble:
1. Is Isopropyl Alchol and denatured alchol the same?
2. What is Acetone used for?
Thanks

Isopropyl alcohol is NOT the same as Denatured. Isopropyl is what a lot of the "dry gas" stuff has in it. I'm talking the stuff you put in your gas tank to get rid of water.

Isopropyl alcohol will absorb water in its raw state, but the stuff you buy in the grocery store, (rubbing alcohol) is already saturated with water, so don't dump it in your gas tank!

Yes Isopropyle alcohol and denatured alcohol are different but not the wat the other responces think.
Denatured alcohol refers to the process where ethanol or ethyl alcohol has adulterants added to make it useless for consumption but still useful for industrial processes. This is done in order to make it exempt from taxes that apply to potable alcohol.

Thought a few added points would also help. Because ethanol is a preagent (starting chemical) for many processes, there are hundreds of methods for denaturing it (making it undrinkable) which will npot interfere with the reaction of a specific process. Typical additives are methanol, isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol), methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone, denatonium, and even aviation gasoline!

So Isopropyl alcohol is not the same as denatured alcohol but is in some ways a denaturing agent.
