LP16798-8   Acetone
Acetone (also known as propanone, dimethyl ketone, 2-propanone, propan-2-one or β-Ketopropane) the simplest ketone, is a colorless, mobile, flammable liquid with melting point at 95.4°C and boiling point at 56.53°C. An important solvent, it has a relative density of 0.819 (at 0°C) and is readily soluble in water, ethanol, ether, etc. The most familiar household use of acetone is as the active ingredient in nail polish remover. Acetone is also used to make plastic, fibers, drugs, and other chemicals. Small amounts of acetone are produced in the body via decarboxylation of ketone bodies. Certain dietary patterns, including prolonged fasting and high-fat low-carbohydrate dieting, or health conditions such as diabetes, can produce ketosis, thus forming acetone in body tissue. Ketones can be evaluated due to toxicological causes such as ingestion of isopropanol leading to acetone production. Acetone is not currently regarded as a carcinogen and is generally recognized to have low acute and chronic toxicity if ingested or inhaled, however at very high vapor concentrations acetone is irritating and may depress the central nervous system.
