Acetone Kumho or Chemo is a colorless, clear, volatile liquid with a sweet odor (close to the smell of fruit), soluble in water and toxic, used as a widely used organic solvent in various industries.
What is Acetone Kumho?
Structured with three carbon atoms, one oxygen atom and six hydrogen atoms, it was first discovered in the Middle Ages by the distillation of metallic acetate such as lead, acetone, but in today’s industry acetone can be obtained directly. It is obtained from propylene (in which a large percentage of acetone is synthesized through the Kyumen process) or from the fermentation of wood and glucose, as well as from the distillation of wood alcohol.
However, it is not bad to consider that this substance is very small in the blood and urine of humans (its amount increases during starvation and also when diabetes is associated with severe lack of oxygen in the blood and urine). Is found.
Advantages and features of Acetone Kumho?
It dissolves well in water, ethanol and ether and is also a good solvent for most organic compounds (ethanol, diethyl ether, benzene, chloroform, low molecular weight alcohols, etc.) and industrial fibers due to its high polarity And it’s plastic.
It is worth noting that Stone, under special conditions, can also become a polymer in the presence of a catalyst and a strong oxidizer if exposed to direct light and air. However, due to the fact that acetone is a flammable substance, it is better to check and control the condition of the substance continuously during prolonged contact with light and air, so that it does not cause a fire at one time.
Application of Acetone Kumho?
It is used as a solvent or additive in various parts of the industry, for example in the production of paints, in the formulation of many cosmetics, in the dilution of polyester resins, in the removal of oil from the surface of open waters, in medical science in the production of drugs. Different, it is used in the treatment of pimples, acne and dry skin peeling, as an additive in diesel, in the production of fabrics, in the cleaning of tools, etc.
