Re: Molecule of the Week - Acetone

There is another point that should bekept in mind. This chemical is not consumed by ladies for their personal maintenance for their nails. Acetone can easily be converted to "Keten" via heating around 100 - 150 deg. Celcius. This component is makes a reaction with water and the Acetic Anhydrid is produced, which is the main component consumed for famous drug "Heroin" synthesis and other chemicals as well. So, Acetone consumption in public in large quantities should be under control.
