  • Russian biochemist and statesman Chaim Weizmann discovered the first method of producing synthetic acetone in the early 1900s. (reference.com)
  • Arthur and the Acetone (1936) is a satirical playlet by George Bernard Shaw which dramatises an imaginary conversation between the Zionist Chaim Weizmann and the British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour, which Shaw presents as the "true" story of how the Balfour Declaration came into being. (wikipedia.org)
  • Shaw says that the declaration was extracted by Weizmann for his contribution to the war effort, in particular his help as a chemist in finding new ways to manufacture acetone cheaply. (wikipedia.org)
  • It was developed by the chemist Chaim Weizmann and was the primary process used to make acetone during World War I, such as to produce cordite, a substance essential for the British war industry. (wikipedia.org)
  • On the Allied side the Russian chemist Chaim Weizmann used starch to eliminate Britain's shortage of acetone, a key raw material for cordite, by fermenting maize to acetone. (wikipedia.org)

  • ethanol
  • The ABE fermentation produces solvents in a ratio of 3 parts acetone, 6 parts butanol to 1 part ethanol. (wikipedia.org)
  • After World War II, ABE fermentation became generally non-profitable, compared to the production of the same three solvents (acetone, butanol, ethanol) from petroleum. (wikipedia.org)
  • oxidation
  • examination of the explosive decomposition of TATP predicts "formation of acetone and ozone as the main decomposition products and not the intuitively expected oxidation products. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acetone peroxides are unwanted by-products of some oxidation reactions such as those used in phenol syntheses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acetone peroxides are also the unwanted product of air-induced oxidation of diisopropyl ether. (wikipedia.org)
  • reaction
  • In enzymology, an acetone carboxylase (EC 6.4.1.6) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction acetone + CO2 + ATP + 2 H2O ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } acetoacetate + AMP + 2 phosphate The 4 substrates of this enzyme are acetone, CO2, ATP, and H2O, whereas its 3 products are acetoacetate, AMP, and phosphate. (wikipedia.org)
  • Deuterated acetone is prepared from heavy water, D2O, by what amounts to an aldol reaction. (wikipedia.org)
  • In this case, the base used is a deuterated version of lithium hydroxide: In order to fully deuterate the acetone, the process is repeated several times, distilling off the acetone from the heavy water , and re-running the reaction in a fresh batch of heavy water. (wikipedia.org)
  • production
  • By 1916, the synthetic production of acetone began on an industrial scale, and over 30,000 tonnes of acetone were produced during the war. (reference.com)
  • In the laboratory, this compound may be prepared by reacting sodium cyanide with acetone, followed by acidification: Considering the high toxicity of acetone cyanohydrin, a safer lab scale production has been developed using microreactor technology. (wikipedia.org)
  • potassium
  • Baeyer and Villiger prepared the dimer by combining potassium persulfate in diethyl ether with acetone, under cooling. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alternatively, a simplified procedure involves the action of sodium or potassium cyanide on the sodium bisulfite adduct of acetone prepared in situ. (wikipedia.org)
  • hazardous
  • Acetone cyanohydrin is classified as an extremely hazardous substance in the US Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • Acetone is available in pure form and is also a common ingredient in paint thinner and fingernail polish remover. (reference.com)
