The most commonly used alcohol disinfectants are ethanol and isopropanol, which can coagulate proteins and cause the death of microorganisms. They are medium-effect disinfectants that can kill bacterial propagules and destroy most lipophilic viruses. Isopropyl alcohol is mostly used for skin disinfection, hand disinfection, and disinfection of medical devices such as ophthalmoscopes, microscope eyepieces and objectives, ultrasonic probes, and stethoscopes. Its actual use concentration is usually 70%. Isopropyl alcohol has a greater ability to dissolve lipids than alcohol, so it can have a better disinfection effect.
