2-Propanol is used as a solvent for gums, resins, alkaloids and essential oils, as a denaturant for ethyl alcohol and is used in lotions and cosmetics. It is used in keyboard, LCD and laptop cleaning, as a wetting agent in the fountain solution used in lithographic printing, and often used as a solvent for French polishing shellac used in cabinet making. It acts as hydride source in the Meerwein-Ponndorf-Verley reduction. It plays an important role in DNA extraction.
