Abstract: A production process, thus reducing the health risks to exposed workers. Experimental studies of toxicity point to effects similar to those of acute ethanol intoxication. A review of sources of human exposure draws attention to reports of life-threatening intoxication following the sponging of febrile children with 2-propanol preparations. While noting the need for further studies of carcinogenic activity, the report concludes that 2-propanol is unlikely to pose a serious health risk for the general population under normal conditions of exposure
