2017-6-1  The ideal process of producing acetone with 90.0% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) decomposition method is proposed within this study. The feed of the process is 100000 ton/ day. This amount of feed is suggested due to the demographic need of acetone for the Iraqi population as well as the surrounding Middle Eastern region.

Design and Control of the Acetone Process via

2010-3-1  Acetone is produced via several alternative processes, one of which is the dehydrogenation of 2-propanol (IPA). The endothermic gas-phase reaction converts IPA to acetone and hydrogen. The process consists of a vaporizer, heated tubular reactor, flash tank, absorber, and two distillation columns. The liquid fresh feed is a mixture of IPA and water.

Acetone The Chemical Company

Acetone, CAS 67-64-1 is the organic liquid compound with the formula (CH3)2CO. It is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid, and is the simplest ketone. About one third of the world's acetone is used as a solvent, and a quarter is consumed as acetone cyanohydrin, a precursor to methyl methacrylate. Acetone is miscible with water and serves as an important solvent, particularly for laboratory
