General description

Acetone is a polar, aprotic organic solvent. It is a colorless and highly volatile liquid. It is commonly used in organic syntheses as solvent and/or building block, in pharmaceutical and personal care industries. This grade meets ACS requirements, making it ideal for a wide range of analytical applications.

Application

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 .
  • Used as solvent and/or building block in organic syntheses, such as SN2 reactions and Jones oxidation
  • Mobile phase in Thin layer chromatography (TLC)
  • Used as solvent in chemical molecules delivery systems in pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries
  • Cleaning proposes

Packaging

1, 4, 4×4 L in PVC-coated bottle
200 L in Pure-Pac™ 1

Features and Benefits

ACS solvents meet or exceed the high standards of the American Chemical Society (ACS) ,with test specifications that are specialized to every compound. According to the American Chemical Society, ACS reagent grade implies that it is a substance of sufficient purity to be used in most chemical analyses or reactions
