Acetophenone is an organic compound with C6H5C(O)CH3 formula. Acetophenone is the simplest form of sweet-smelling ketone. It is obtained by different methods such as reaction of ethyl benzene with oxygen and others. It is identified in vehicle exhaust and combustion of fuel & coal. It is a thick colorless liquid at temperatures higher than room temperature & a solid at lower temperatures. It naturally occurs in cauliflower, apple, apricot, banana, cheese, and beef. It is highly soluble in water. It is also soluble in glycerol, ether, alcohol, fatty oils and chloroform. It is used as an intermediate for plastic, pharmaceutical, and resin production. It is a fragrance & flavor additive in tobacco, nonalcoholic beverages, and some foods. Some of the essential properties include colorless, optimum viscosity, and pungent fragrance etc.
