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

  • 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
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 .
