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 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.

Application

Suitable for HPLC, spectrophotometry, environmental testing
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 .
Acetone 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
