  • Diacetone alcohol is a chemical compound with the formula CH3C(O)CH2C(OH)(CH3)2.
  • This liquid is common synthetic intermediate used for the preparation of other compounds.
  • Diacetone alcohol has slow evaporation rates. It is used as a solvent for both hydrogen bonding and polar substances.
  • It is miscible in water and used as a solvent for water-based coatings.
  • Diacetone alcohol can be prepared from acetone by the action of alkali metal hydroxides, calcium hydroxide, and barium hydroxide.
  • Methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) is a valuable industrial solvent produced commercially in a three-stage process from an acetone feedstock. First, acetone is dimerized to produce diacetone alcohol (DAA). Second, DAA undergoes a condensation reaction to produce mesityl oxide (MO) and water. Third, the carbon-carbon double bond of MO is selectively hydrogenated to produce MIBK.
  • It is used as a solvent extractant in purification processes for resins and waxes.
  • Diacetone alcohol is more suitable for use in applications as a component of gravure printing inks, with proving favorable flow and leveling characteristics.
  • Diacetone alcohol, having hydroxyl and carbonyl group in the same molecule is used as a chemical intermediate.
  • Over 90% of the diacetone alcohol produced is used as a coatings solvent.
  • The production volume of diacetone alcohol in Japan is 3,236 tonnes/year in past years.
  • A report from a Japanese manufacturer, 147 kg/year measured of diacetone alcohol are treated in its own wastewater treatment plant with 85% of
    removal rate and are released with 3.6 x 1010 L/year of effluent into river.
  • Diacetone alcohol is produced under the well-controlled closed system, amount of release to air phase is negligibly small. The waste of diacetone alcohol from the production system is released to water phase after treated its own wastewater treatment plant.
