The method used here to prepare acetone from calcium acetate has now been replaced most widely by the preparation from cumene hydroperoxide (Hock's splitting), as this allows phenol to be won simultaneously.
The extremely good solvent properties of acetone (e.g. for lacquers) should be dmonstrated on the basis of some examples.
What you can learn about
- Acetone can be won technically by heating calcium acetate.
- It can be separated from the aqueous solution by salting-out.
- Easy teaching and efficient learning by using interactive experimentation PHYWE-Software
- Experiment is part of a complete solution set with experiments for the topic Organic Chemistry matched with international curriculum: all topics are covered
