These include benzene, ether, alcohol and chloroform.
Chemical Properties of Acetone
Acetone has a range of industrial uses, and is commonly used as a solvent in many different processes. Acetone is also an important reagent in the manufacture of methyl methacrylate and bisphenol A. The current method of producing acetone is via the cumene process. Other methods include the direct oxidation of propylene (the Wacker-Hoechst process), or the conversion of propylene to propanol which can then be oxidised to acetone.
