There are two isomers of propanol. If the isomer is unstated, it is more likely to refer to propan-1-ol.
- Propan-1-ol (or n-propanol) — CH3CH2CH2OH
- Propan-2-ol (or isopropyl alcohol, or isopropanol) — (CH3)2CHOH
See also: propanal (propionaldehyde), differing in spelling from propanol by a single letter, a different compound.
- Propanol was given as the chemical to be manufactured in the contentious chemical plant run by the British Chemical Corp in the 1981 British comedy Yes Minister episode 'The Greasy Pole'. In that episode it was described as being manufactured with metadioxin', not the toxic dioxin which caused protests by the constituants of the local Member of Parliament.
