About Acetone

Acetone is a colourless, highly volatile and flammable liquid with a characteristic pungent odour. The main production process of acetone involves the reaction of propylene and benzene in the presence of phosphoric acid-based or zeolite catalysts. Cumene is oxidized in the liquid phase to cumene hydroperoxide. It is then cleaved in the presence of sulfuric acid to phenol and acetone.

Acetone is commonly used as a solvent to manufacture plastics and other industrial products. It is a chemical used to make products like nail polish remover and paint remover. Acetone is an organic solvent which is most commonly used in Pharmaceuticals.
