General description

Acetylacetone is a chelating ligand and forms organometallic complexes that are used as gasoline additives, lubricant additives, driers for varnishes and printer′s inks, fungicides, insecticides and colors. It is a selective extraction reagent for determination of molybdenum in ferrous materials.

Application

Acetylacetone was used in preparing Y203, La203 and La2CuO4 thin films and the titanate/anatase dual-phase photocatalyst.
