• ethanol
  • Ca(CH3COO)2 → CaO(s) + CO2(g) + (CH3)2CO (v) After that time, during World War I, acetone was produced using acetone-butanol-ethanol fermentation with Clostridium acetobutylicum bacteria, which was developed by Chaim Weizmann (later the first president of Israel) in order to help the British war effort, in the preparation of Cordite.

  • Propylene
  • In the cumene process, benzene is alkylated with propylene to produce cumene, which is oxidized by air to produce phenol and acetone: Other processes involve the direct oxidation of propylene (Wacker-Hoechst process), or the hydration of propylene to give 2-propanol, which is oxidized to acetone.

  • formaldehyde
  • This eighty-eighth volume of IARC Monographs evaluates the available evidence on the carcinogenic potential in humans of formaldehyde, 2-butoxyethanol and 1-tert-butoxypropan-2-ol. (who.int)
  • reduction
  • The reduction of various nitroaromatic compounds into their corresponding amines is achieved by zeolite-supported copper nanoparticles with 2-propanol as a sustainable reducing agent with good selectivity and excellent yields. (wiley.com)
  • The MPV reduction is believed to go through a catalytic cycle involving a six-member ring transition state as shown in Figure 2. (wikipedia.org)
  • Figure 2, Catalytic cycle of Meerwein-Ponndorf-Verley reduction Each step in the cycle is reversible and the reaction is driven by the thermodynamic properties of the intermediates and the products. (wikipedia.org)
  • The use of chiral alcohol (R)-(+)-sec-o-bromophen-ethyl alcohol gave 82%ee (percent enantiomeric excess) in the reduction of 2-chloroacetophenone. (wikipedia.org)
  • production
  • 1-Amino-2-propanol is typically used in metal working fluid, waterborne coating, personal care products, and in the production of titanium dioxide and polyurethanes. (wikipedia.org)
  • large
  • In Figure 3, 1 is favored over 2 due to the large steric effect in 2 from the two phenyl groups. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • Hexafluoro-2-propanol is transparent to UV light with high density, low viscosity and low refractive index. (wikipedia.org)
  • The same Advisory Group also identified 2-butoxyethanol and other glycol ethers as high priorities, based on the availability of new carcinogenesis bioassays conducted by the US National Toxicology Program. (who.int)
