When 70% Isopropyl Alcohol, or propan-2-ol, comes in to contact with bacteria the 30% water content helps the alcohol permeate through the bacteria’s structure. The alcohol then causes the proteins of the bacteria to denature and coagulate, or more simply, lose their structure. This loss of structure is what causes the bacteria to die.
Essentially, Isopropyl Alcohol (C3H8O) is more volatile i.e. has a lower boiling point, than water (H20). IPA has a higher molecular weight than water, but has extremely weak hydrogen bonds in comparison. It is IPA’s inability to maintain these hydrogen bonds at lower temperatures that causes it to evaporate quickly.
