There is no information that isoprophyl alcohol will help with iron oxidation. There is a way to help which is with various metals that will contract with the iron to produce the iron oxidation that you are looking for. Sliver and copper are the two metals that produce this the quickest.

Yes. Isopropyl alcohol is very less stable. It even evaporates a little bit at room tempratre. It also has oxygen. Because of the high kineatic energy of isopropyl alcohol. There would be fast chemical reaction. Therefore the alcohol will casue an increase rate of oxidation. which in turn would lead to a faster rusting of the iron.
