The hydration of propylene to isopropanol was investigated. The first part of this study concerned the direct hydration reaction in various liquid phase systems in the presence of sulfuric acid or p-toluenesulfonic acid. The second part in a two-stage process in which propylene was contacted with excess acetic acid to form isopropyl acetate; the ester was then hydrolyzed to isopropyl alcohol and acetic acid.
