Isopropyl alcohol is not the same as denatured alcohol. The former is a rubbing alcohol that is poisonous. Denatured alcohol, on the other hand, is methanol that has been treated with denatonium benzoate and is not fit for human consumption.

No. Denatured alcohol is ethanol with poisonous liquids to make the ethanol undrinkable.

No. Grain alcohol is ethyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol is a different compound and is not safe to drink.

ethanol has the formula C2H5OH and is suitable for consumption by humans,isopropyl alcohol(C3H8O) is an isomer of propanol with the OH alcohol functional group on the second carbon as opposed to at the end of the chain as normal,whats marketed as isopropyl alcohol(rubbing alcohol) in America actually contains no isopropyl alcohol as far as i know,just denatured ethanol.isopropyl aclohol is a skin irritant and is metabolised to acetone in the body,it is about twice as toxic as ethanol
