Understanding Ketone Chemistry
Ketones are organic compounds containing a carbonyl group bonded to two carbon atoms. Some of the most common ketones used around the world today include acetone and butanone. They are typically colorless liquids that give off a sweet or fruity odor. They have a boiling point lower than water and evaporate quickly under normal conditions. These chemicals also have a relatively low flashpoint and will ignite easily in the presence of an ignition source, making them extremely flammable and hazardous to handle without proper precautions.
The vast range of experience we have with these and many other volatile chemical compounds means customers can trust us to provide them with safe and effective ketone blending and packaging as well as warehousing and delivery. Whether you require ketones in 55-gallon drums or in a smaller quantity, we can accommodate your needs.
Common Ketone Uses
Natural and synthetic ketones have a wide range of applications across numerous market segments. Among the many uses these chemicals serve include:
- Solvents. Many common types of ketones such as acetone are used as solvents in laboratories, industrial facilities and in household products. They are typically utilized to break down certain substances to make cleaning easier.
- Nail polish removers. Acetone is one of the key ingredients in many nail polish remover products found in retail stores. This is due to its ability to dissolve hardened polish.
- Chemical intermediates. Ketones often serve as intermediates in the production of many products including pharmaceuticals and plastics. They also can be used in the production of other chemicals.
