I added [citation needed] to the sentence "Isopropyl alcohol is denatured for certain uses" because it doesn't make sense within my understanding. IPA is sometimes used as a denaturant for ethanol, so I can't understand what the point of adding some other denaturant to it would be. I looked for, but failed to find, a reference to denaturing of IPA. I left the sentence in, in the hope that the original writer knew something that I didn't and that someone would explain it to the reader who was as confused about it as I.--Wcoole (talk) 20:09, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Isopropyl alcohol[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Isopropyl alcohol's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "PGCH":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 19:31, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
