Acetone (propanone) is the organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CO.  It is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid, and is the simplest and smallest ketone. Acetone is a solvent used in manufacture of plastics and other industrial products. Acetone may also be used to a limited extent in household products, including cosmetics and personal care products, where its most frequent application would be in the formulation of nail polish removers. Acetone occurs naturally in the human body as a byproduct of metabolism.

Uses for Acetone :-

About a third of the world's acetone is used as a solvent, and a quarter is consumed as acetone cyanohydrin, a precursor to methyl methacrylate

1- Solvent : Acetone is a good solvent for many plastics and some synthetic fibers. It is used for thinning polyester resin,Acetone is used as a solvent by the pharmaceutical industry and as a denaturant in denatured alcohol. Acetone is also present as an excipient in some pharmaceutical drugs.Although itself flammable, acetone is used extensively as a solvent for the safe transportation and storage of acetylene.

2- Chemical intermediate: Acetone is widely used in the textile industry for degreasing wool and degumming silk.

3- Laboratory: In the laboratory, acetone is used as a polar, aprotic solvent in a variety of organic reactions, such as SN2

reactions. The use of acetone solvent is critical for the Jones oxidation. It does not form an azeotrope with water It is a common solvent for rinsing laboratory glassware because of its low cost and volatility. Despite its common use as a supposed drying agent, it is not effective except by bulk displacement and dilution. Acetone can be cooled with dry ice to −78 °C without freezing.

4- Medical and cosmetic uses: Acetone is used in a variety of general medical and cosmetic applications and is also listed as a component in food additives and food packaging and also in nail polish remover. Dermatologists use acetone with alcohol

for acne treatments to peel dry skin.

5- Domestic and other niche uses: 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 often used for vapor polishing of printing artifacts on 3D-printed models printed with ABS plastic. Low-grade acetone is also commonly used in academic laboratory settings as a glassware rinsing agent for removing residue and solids before a final wash.

Industry Served

  • Personal care industry: Acetone is best known as the primary ingredient in nail polish remover. Other cosmetic products, such as skin creams and makeup, contain acetone as a solvent to deliver different chemicals. It’s also a key ingredient in chemical skin peels to combat acne.

  • Pharmaceutical industry: Active ingredients and fillers use acetone as a solvent to deliver the correct amount of medication each dose; therefore, common drugs tend to use acetone as an excipient. Acetone is often used to denature alcohol as well.

  • Textile industry: Acetone not only removes nail polish, it can also remove gum, oil, and other sticky substances from raw textiles like cotton or silk. As a solvent, acetone thins or entirely removes resins,epoxy, and glue from hard or soft surfaces. When welding, applying acetone after a final weld removes rosin flux. Acetone is a great degreaser in metalworking as well.

  • Electronics industry: For maximum performance, electronics require exceptionally clean components, and acetone expels all debris. Environmental industry: Acetone helps contain oil spills because it dissolves sludge, removing it from the surface of water, marine plants, or animals. Because acetone is an organic compound, it’s considered non-toxic to animals and the environment.

  • Petroleum industry: As a gasoline additive, it causes gas to more easily diffuse inside engines since it thins it, allowing it to vaporize. This improves fuel efficiency.
