Production of Acetone from Propylene and Benzene via Cumene Process; from Isopropanol; via Direct Oxidation; and via Indirect Oxidation.
In the cumene process, benzene is alkylated with the help of propene, which is further oxidised to produce Acetone with phenol. This production process utilises a significant amount of air and nearly all acetone production takes place via the cumene route where 0.62 tonnes of acetone is prepared with each tonne of phenol. Being a co-product to phenol, the availability of acetone also depends upon the market conditions for phenol.
