Application

Acetone is used as solvent in a variety of pharmaceutical production processes, e. g. tablet coating, granulation, and microsphere production. It is also applied as solvent or co-solvent in topical formulations.
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 .
