Isopropanol, Isopropyl or IPA?

We are asked what is the difference between Isopropanol Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol and IPA 70%. For clarification there is no difference whatsoever. They are the same chemical. Unfortunately there are many different naming conventions, this does lead to some confusion. 

So look for the two commonly used names Isopropanol Alcohol 70% or Isopropyl Alcohol 70%.

Rest assured either type, in the correct quantities (40ml) and dilution (70%) can be added to the 6 litres of distilled water in the tank.
