Acetone is a clear, colorless, volatile and flammable organic liquid with a characteristic odor described as pungent or fruity. It is the simplest and smallest ketone also called as 2-propanone or dimethyl ketone. It is primarily used as an industrial solvent and chemical intermediate. Acetone is miscible with water and serves as an important solvent, which is majorly used for cleaning purposes in laboratories. Acetone is also found in paints, varnishes, and lacquers and is used as a solvent for cement in the leather and rubber industries. Acetone is often the primary component in cleaning agents such as nail polish remover. Acetone is a component of superglue remover and easily removes residues from glass and porcelain. Make-up artists use acetone to remove skin adhesive from the netting of wigs and mustaches by immersing the item in an acetone bath, then removing the softened glue residue with a stiff brush.
Acetone is produced directly or indirectly from propene. More than 90% of the world’s acetone production occurs simultaneously with phenol, hence following the same trend as phenol. In addition to being manufactured, acetone also occurs naturally, even being biosynthesized in small amounts in the human body. Acetone is used as a polar aprotic solvent in a variety of organic reactions, such as SN2 reactions. An important use for acetone is in the production of methyl methacrylate and bisphenol A. Bisphenol A is used for the production of polycarbonate and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate resins are widely used in automotive industry for advanced lighting applications, such as headlamp bezels, headlamp lenses, and light guides.
