Without acetone it can not be stored in a compact (liquefied and cylinder) acetylene condition, because the pressure in the pure form is extremely explosive. For this purpose, containers of porous material are impregnated with acetone. One liter of acetone can solve 250 liters of acetylene.
Acetone is also used in the extraction of many plant substances.
Acetone is used as a raw material for the synthesis of acetic anhydride, ketene, diacetone alcohol and many other compounds.
Many manufacturers may look for various acetone sellers to find high quality product. Acetone traders in their turn not always care about the quality, and only interested about the profit. However, you should always remember that such matter is very important and should be carefully used. That's whyacetone technical prime grade of our plant is the main goal.
