Isopropanol, also known as isopropyl alcohol (IPA), is a widely used and versatile solvent and disinfectant. With its chemical formula C3H8O, it is a colorless and flammable liquid known for its ability to dissolve a wide range of substances, making it indispensable in industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and electronics. Isopropanol is commonly utilized as a disinfectant, rubbing alcohol, and antiseptic for its ability to kill bacteria and viruses. It also plays a crucial role in laboratories as a cleaning agent and for diluting or dissolving various compounds. In electronics manufacturing, isopropanol is used for cleaning circuit boards and sensitive electronic components due to its fast evaporation rate and non-conductive properties. Its versatility, disinfecting capabilities, and effectiveness as a cleaning agent contribute to its widespread use, with careful attention to its flammable properties during handling and storage.

For many learners high school is not enough to prepare them for what they are to face at first year university. They find themselves completely overwhelmed and intimidated by what is expected of them to be able to do in a laboratory.

Unfortunately many learners who want to pursue science subjects go through this dilemma, few as they are because fact is SA is not producing enough learners who will become engineers, doctors, science researchers, let alone science innovators.

To address this, we developed a chemistry kits with 52 experiments for use by learners at home. This gives them an opportunity to gain hand-on exposure and engagement, confidence and understanding they need to study sciences further.

The kit comes with a manual explaining how science is experienced in daily life and therefore brings awareness of the application and usefulness of science, helping the learner relate to what they learn at school.

Some schools do have kits where only the teacher demonstrates the experiments and this is great, but you don’t master driving by watching the driving instructor, you must get in the driver’s seat yourself.
