Acetone USP NF Grade Specifications
C3H6O -- 58.08
Acetone CAS 67-64-1

Acetone contains not less than 99.0 percent of C3H6O, calculated on the anhydrous basis.
[Caution: Acetone is very flammable. Do not use where it may be ignited. ]

Identification: The IR absorption spectrum of a thin film of it between potassium bromide plates exhibits a strong band at about 5.8 µm; a strong region of absorption between 6.8 and 7.5 µm, with maxima at about 7.0 and 7.3 µm; a strong maximum at about 8.2 µm; and weak maxima at about 9.2 and 11.0 µm.
Specific gravity: not more than 0.789.
Water: To pass the test (0.5%).
Nonvolatile residue: Evaporate 50 mL in a tared porcelain dish on a steam bath, and dry at 105C for 1 hour: the weight of the residue does not exceed 2 mg (0.004%).
Readily oxidizable substances: Mix 20 mL with 0.10 mL of 0.10 N potassium permanganate in a glass-stoppered bottle: the permanganate color of the mixture does not completely disappear within 15 minutes.

Acetone FCC Food Grade Specifications
2-Propanone; Dimethyl Ketone
C3H6O Formula weight 58.08
CAS 67-64-1

Acetone occurs as a clear, colorless, volatile liquid. It is miscible with water, with alcohol, with ether, with chloroform, and with most volatile oils.
Caution: Acetone is highly flammable.
Function: Extraction solvent.

Identification: Mix 0.1 mL of sample with 10 mL of water, add 5 mL of 1 N sodium hydroxide, warm, and add 5 mL of iodine. A yellow precipitate of iodoform forms.
Assay: Not less than 99.5% and not more than 100.5% of C3H6O, by weight.
Acidity: (as acetic acid) Not more than 0.002%.
Aldehydes (as formaldehyde): Not more than 0.002%.
Alkalinity (as ammonia): Not more than 10 mg/kg.
Distillation Range: Within a range of 1°, including 56.1°.
Lead: Not more than 1 mg/kg.
Methanol: Not more than 0.05%.
Nonvolatile Residue: Not more than 10 mg/kg.
Phenols: Passes test.
Refractive Index: Between 1.358 and 1.360.
Solubility in Water: Passes test.
Specific Gravity: Not greater than 0.7880 at 25°/25° (equivalent to 0.7930 at 20°/20°).
Substances Reducing Permanganate: Passes test.
Water: Not more than 0.5%.
