Isophorone appears as a clear colorless liquid, with a camphor-like odor. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Boiling point 420°F. Flash point near 200°F. Contact irritates skin and eyes. Toxic by ingestion. Used as a solvent and in pesticides.Isophorone is a clear liquid that smells like peppermint. It can be dissolved in water and evaporates somewhat faster than water. It is an industrial chemical used as a solvent in some printing inks, paints, lacquers, and adhesives. It is also used as an intermediate in the production of certain chemicals. Although isophorone is an industrial chemical, it also occurs naturally in cranberries.Isophorone is a cyclic ketone, the structure of which is that of cyclohex-2-en-1-one substituted by methyl groups at positions 3, 5 and 5. It has a role as a solvent and a plant metabolite. It is a cyclic ketone and an enone.

Production of Isophorone
Isophorone is produced by the alkali catalysed condensation of acetone at high pressure. In a commercial process a feedstock consisting of water, acetone and sodium hydroxide is fed to a high pressure reaction column containing a refluxing azeotropic mixture of acetone and water. The acetone is converted to isophorone and high-boiling by-products which pass down the reaction column in the descending reflux and enter a second column, a hydrolysis column, in which unconverted acetone is stripped from the crude isophorone and recycled as a vapour to the reaction column.
Environmental considerations: Land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. /SRP: If time permits, pits, ponds, lagoons, soak holes, or holding areas should be sealed with an impermeable flexible membrane liner./ Dike surfact flow using soil, sand bags, foamed polyurethane, or foamed concrete. Absorb bulk liquid with fly ash, cement powder, or comercial sorbents.
