Pure acetone, also known by its IPUAC name propan-2-one, is a clear, colorless, volatile, flammable, and pungent liquid. Acetone is the simplest ketone (organic compounds with two alkyl (R) groups attached to a C=O group), with two methyl (CH3-) groups joined to a carbonyl group (C=O), to give the chemical formula (CH3)2C=O, (C3H6O).
Acetone has a wide range of uses, some specialized, but many related to its property as a versatile solvent and cleaner. In the chemical industry Lab Grade Acetone is used extensively as a solvent in chromatography. Perhaps the most common, everyday household use of acetone is as nail polish remover.
As an industrial de-greaser, it is used to clean metal surfaces prior to treatment with paint or to them being soldered or welded together.
