Application

Acetone is the suitable reagent for use in UV spectroscopy. It may be employed in the following studies:
• As an organic solvent to investigate the zeta potential of TiO2 and Al2O3 powders.
• Synthesis of poly(ortho esters) (POE), biodegradable carriers for drug delivery devices.
• Spectrophotometric determination of ester groups in lipids.

Acetone′s luminesence intensity is dependent upon the solution components . The absorption of UV light by acetone, results in its photolysis and the production of radials .

General description

Photocatalytic activity of mixtures of TiO2 (P25) with rare earth oxides for the oxidation of acetone has been reported. The vapor-phase aldol condensation of acetone over MgO promoted with alkali (Li, Na, K and Cs) or alkaline earth (Ca, Sr and Ba) metal ions has been studied. Acetone undergoes Aldol condensation in the presence of catalysts Mg-Al layered double hydroxides (LDH) and Cl- and/or CO32- as compensating anions to afford diacetone alcohol and mesityl oxide. Enantioselective Aldol condensation of acetone with several isatins has been described.
