UC Chemicals Warning on Isopropanol

Dear UC Chemicals users,

Many of you have received warnings in the UC Chemicals system indicating that your isopropanol (also known as isopropyl alcohol) is a peroxide-forming chemical and has expired. Please be aware that EH&S does not consider isopropanol to be capable under normal handling and storage conditions of forming organic peroxides, and does not regulate it as such. While EH&S always recommends disposing of chemicals which you no longer need, you are not required to dispose of your isopropanol at this time.

If you have any questions regarding this issue, or any other aspect of your chemical inventory, please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]. Thank you, and have a great day!

EH&S Chemical Inventory Team
