Application

Acetone was used in the affinity purification of modified proteins using streptavidin beads for the mass spectrometric (MS) identification of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARP) substrate proteins.
It may be used in the following studies:
• NMR spectroscopic evaluation of glucose metabolism in biological samples (blood).
• Preparation of 13wt% amorphous poly (lactic acid) (PLA) solution, which was required for the preparation of electrospun PLA membranes.
• As a precursor for the synthesis of methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) in the presence of sulfonated graphene oxide-Pd/cordierite catalyst.
• Synthesis of (4-hydroxymethyl-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-dioxolane), a solketal from glycerol using supercritical fluids (SCF) technology.
It may be used in the synthesis of the following acetone hydrazones:
• 1-isopropylidene-2-methylhydrazine
• 1-isopropylidene-2-hydroxyethylhydrazine
• 1-isopropylidene-2-formylhydrazine

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

Acetone is a ketone. Mixtures of TiO2 (P25) with rare earth oxides (La2O3 or Y2O3) calcined at 700°C or 650°C has been reported to efficiently photocatalyze the oxidation of acetone. Its aldol condensation in vapor-phase has been investigated over MgO promoted with alkali (Li, Na, K and Cs) or alkaline earth (Ca, Sr and Ba) metal ions. It undergoes Aldol condensation in the presence of Mg-Al layered double hydroxides (LDH) as catalysts and Cl- and/or CO32- as compensating anions to afford diacetone alcohol and mesityl oxide. Enantioselective Aldol condensation of acetone with various isatins in the presence of dipeptides (catalyst) has been described.
