General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product is 100% biorenewable and thus aligns with "Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries" and "Use of Renewable Feedstocks". Click here for more information.
This ACS grade Acetone is a drop-in replacement for any Acetone application. Made from 100% renewable carbon (verified through C14 ASTM D6866-16 testing) and produced in an environmentally friendly way that reduces the carbon footprint of production and reliance on fossil-fuels.
Because it is not from petroleum, it is free from many non-renewable contaminants, such as benzene, phthalates and other phenols, leading to higher quality product.

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 .
BioRenewable acetone is free of the many by-products of petroleum manufacturing, such as benzene, aldehydes, and ethers. Additionally, it is verified as renewable through ASTM testing (ASTM Standard D6866-16), that verifies the percentage of new carbon.
This is a plant waste-derived acetone, that acts as a drop-in replacement for any acetone application with no change in procedure or equipment necessary.
