An important industrial use for acetone involves its reaction with phenol to produce bisphenol A, which is a valuable component of many polymers, such as polycarbonates, polyurethanes, and epoxy resins. Another industrial application involves its use as a general purpose cleaner in paint and ink manufacturing operations.
Acetone is also used extensively for the safe transport and storage of acetylene. Vessels containing a porous material are first filled with acetone followed by acetylene, which dissolves into the acetone. One liter of acetone can dissolve around 250 liters of acetylene.
