Acetone, a volatile organic compound, plays a versatile role in various industries. It's a crucial solvent in chemical manufacturing, aiding in the production of plastics, pharmaceuticals, and paints. In laboratories, it serves as a cleaning agent and solvent for research. However, its flammable nature and potential health risks demand careful handling and adherence to safety protocols to harness its benefits while minimizing risks.
