General description

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.

Application

Acetone′s luminesence intensity is dependent upon the solution components . The absorption of UV light by acetone, results in its photolysis and the production of radials .
