Acetone, or propanone, is an organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CO. It is the simplest and smallest ketone. It is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid with a characteristic odor. Acetone is miscible with water and serves as an important solvent in its own right, in industry, home, and laboratory. About 6.7 million tonnes were produced worldwide in 2010, mainly for use as a solvent and production of methyl methacrylate and bisphenol A. It is a common building block in organic chemistry. Familiar household uses of acetone are as the active ingredient in nail polish remover and as paint thinner. It has volatile organic compound (VOC) exempt status in the USA. Acetone is produced and disposed of in the human body through normal metabolic processes. It is normally present in blood and urine. People with diabetes produce it in larger amounts. Reproductive toxicity tests show that it has low potential to cause reproductive problems. Ketogenic diets that increase ketone bodies (acetone, β-hydroxybutyric acid and acetoacetic acid) in the blood are used to counter epileptic attacks in infants and children who suffer from refractory epilepsy.

Overview Of Acetone
Tons of acetone are consumed in the production of the solvents methyl isobutyl alcohol and methyl isobutyl ketone. In the laboratory, acetone is used as a polar, aprotic solvent in a variety of organic reactions. 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. Acetone is used in the field of pathology to find lymph nodes in fatty tissues for tumor staging. It's also used for destaining microscope slides of certain stains. 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. 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. Acetone is used extensively in the United States by botanical extraction and processing facilities to make herbal products. Acetone is used by people in America that make botanical and plant extracts. Acetone is used for the extraction of chlorophylls and carotenoids from water-containing plant materials. Testers who ensure the safety of herbal extracts perform residual solvent analysis to search for a variety of harmful residual solvents, including acetone. Acetone should be purged from botanical extracts, concentrates and oils.
We present evidence that 1% (v/v) acetone is capable of inhibiting multiplication of vaccinia and rabbitpox viruses in chick embryo fibroblast cell cultures; and when
infections with these viruses were treated with both acetone and N-methyl-isatin-flthiosemicarbazone the extent of inhibition of virus multiplication was much greater than in experiments using each preparation separately. Read more here.
What Is Anhydrous Acetone Used For?
Anhydrous Acetone (C3H6O) is a dry solvent that does not contain water (H2O). It is an ideal solvent for synthetic fibers, plastics, cleaning tools, thinning resins and dissolving epoxies and glue.

How To Choose The Grade Of Acetone To Purchase Online From Lab Alley
ACS grade acetone exceeds or meets purity standards set by the American Chemical Society (ACS). This grade is acceptable for food, drug, or medicinal use and can be used for ACS applications or for general procedures that require stringent quality specifications and a purity of ≥95%. Lab Alley sells acetone online in the USA that meets these requirements here. This grade of acetone is often classified with terms such as "100% acetone", 100% pure acetone" or "pure acetone".
Reagent grade acetone sold by Lab Alley is generally equal to ACS grade (≥95%) and is acceptable for food, drug, or medicinal use and is suitable for use in many laboratory and analytical applications.
USP grade acetone sold by Lab Alley meets or exceeds requirements of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP). This grade is acceptable for food, drug, or medicinal use. It is also used for most laboratory purposes.
Food-grade acetone is non-toxic at certain concentrations and safe for use as as an indirect additive. Food grade acetone complies with the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined acetone is safe for use as an indirect food additive in adhesives and food-contact coatings and is regarded as a Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) substance at certain concentrations. Acetone is a volatile liquid mainly used as a solvent, color diluent and flavor enhancer in the food industry. It is also used as an extractant due to its miscibility with many organic solvents, water, and oils.
Extraction grade acetone is suggested for food, drug, medicine, botanical and plant extraction, applications and processes.
Technical grade acetone is used for commercial and industrial purposes; however, like many others, it is not pure enough to be offered for food, drug, or medicinal use of any kind.
Laboratory grade is the most popular grade purchased by science instructors and chemistry teachers for use in educational applications. The levels of impurities in lab grade acetone are not specified. Lab grade acetone is an excellent choice for schools, demonstrations, teaching and training.
Lab grade acetone is not typically pure enough to be completely safe for food, drug, or medicinal use. ACS grade acetone, reagent grade acetone, food grade acetone, NF grade acetone, USP grade acetone and HPLC grade acetone are suggested for food, drug, medicine, botanical and plant extraction applications and processes. Laboratory grade acetone is the type of grade that is typically used in industrial and manufacturing solvent applications. Laboratory grade acetone is frequently titled industrial grade acetone.
Medical grade acetone is an ACS grade acetone used by medical facilities for sanitation procedures and dermatologists for acne remedies and chemical peels. Acetone can also be used in medical research settings for destaining microscope slides in certain instances.
Anhydrous acetone is acetone with no water content. Anhydrous acetone may still have other impurities (less than .1%).
HPLC Grade Acetone (≥99.9%)
HPLC grade acetone refers to the quality of the mobile phase ingredients and solution, not the sample. High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is a form of column chromatography that pumps a sample mixture or analyte in a solvent (known as the mobile phase) such as acetone at high pressure through a column with chromatographic packing material (stationary phase). HPLC grade acetone is a used for diagnostic testing and also during the comprehensive analysis of bioactive compounds in plant material.
Acetone is a colorless, volatile, flammable organic solvent. Acetone occurs naturally in plants, trees, forest fires, vehicle exhaust and as a breakdown product of animal fat metabolism. This agent may be normally present in very small quantities in urine and blood; larger amounts may be found in the urine and blood of diabetics. Acetone is toxic in high doses. Acetone is one of the ketone bodies produced during ketoacidosis. Acetone is not regarded as a waste product of metabolism. However, its physiological role in biochemical machinery is not clear. A model for the role of acetone metabolism is presented that orders the events occurring in acetonemia in sequence: in diabetic ketosis or starvation, ketone body production (b-hydroxy-butyrate, acetoacetate) provides fuel for vital organs (heart, brain . ) raising the chance of survival of the metabolic catastrophe. However, when ketone body production exceeds the degrading capacity, the accumulating acetoacetic acid presents a new challenge to the pH regulatory system. Acetone production and its further degradation to C3 fragments fulfill two purposes: the maintenance of pH buffering capacity and provision of fuel for peripheral tissues. Since ketosis develops under serious metabolic circumstances, all the mechanisms that balance or moderate the effects of ketosis enhance the chance for survival. From this point of view, the theory that transportable C3 fragments can serve as additional nutrients is a novel view of acetone metabolism which introduces a new approach to the study of acetone degradation, especially in understanding its physiological function and the interrelationship between liver and peripheral tissues. (PMID: 10580530). Acetone is typically derived from acetoacetate through the action of microbial acetoacetate decarboxylases found in gut microflora. In chemistry, acetone is the simplest representative of the ketones. Acetone is a colorless, mobile, flammable liquid readily soluble in water, ethanol, ether, etc. , and itself serves as an important solvent. Acetone is an irritant and inhalation may lead to hepatotoxic effects (causing liver damage). Acetone is a manufactured chemical that is also found naturally in the environment. It is a colorless liquid with a distinct smell and taste. It evaporates easily, is flammable, and dissolves in water. It is also called dimethyl ketone, 2-propanone, and beta-ketopropane. Acetone is used to make plastic, fibers, drugs, and other chemicals. It is also used to dissolve other substances. It occurs naturally in plants, trees, volcanic gases, forest fires, and as a product of the breakdown of body fat. It is present in vehicle exhaust, tobacco smoke, and landfill sites. Industrial processes contribute more acetone to the environment than natural processes. Read more here.
