Isophorone is an organic compound, a colorless to yellowish liquid with
characteristic smell, that is used as a solvent and as an intermediate
in organic synthesis.
also occurs naturally in cranberries.
- The use
of isophorone as a solvent resulted from the search for ways to dispose
of or recycle acetone, which is a waste product of phenol synthesis.
Isophorone can be manufactured by catalyzed self-condensation of
oxide is the initial product of the self-aldol condensation of acetone.
acetone formed can react further with mesityl oxide via a Michael
reaction and subsequent intramolecular aldol condensation to eventually
obtain the six-membered ring of isophorone.
production and consumption of isophorone in the world is concentrated in
western advanced countries and regions.
import amount of isophorone in China was around 3 500 tons and the
import price was around US$1 500 per ton.
- Import was mostly made from the United States, Germany and France.
Isophorone is used as a solvent in some printing inks, paints, lacquers,
adhesives, copolymers, coatings, finishings and pesticides.
- It is
also used as a chemical intermediate and as an ingredient in wood
preservatives and floor sealants.
