General description

Acetone is a carbonyl-group bearing chemical which is categorized under the ketone family of compounds.


Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
Acetone has been used as a reference standard for the determination of the analyte in human breath, cattle breath and human blood by solid-phase extraction combined with gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS). It may be used as a solvent in volatile phenols determination by dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction (DLLME) combined with GC-MS.(5)

Designed retroaldolases have utilized a nucleophilic lysine to promote carbon-carbon bond cleavage of β-hydroxy-ketones via a covalent Schiff base intermediate. Previous computational designs have incorporated a water molecule to facilitate formation and breakdown of the carbinolamine intermediate to give the
