Cyclopentanone, also known as Adipic Ketono, has an aromatic odor and is an important intermediate of pharmaceutical and pesticide fine chemical products.
It belongs to the class of cyclic ketones, similar in structure to cyclopentane, both of which are five-membered cyclic structures, but the cyclopentanone molecule contains a ketone group.
In general, it is a colorless transparent oily liquid. There is a special ether and a slightly mint-like odor. Impurities are light yellow and develop shade with contaminations created with time, water white to greyish-yellow, and a pungent odour.
Insoluble in water, soluble in ethanol, ether and also acetone. Anaesthetic in high concentrations.
The oxidation of cyclopentanone can obtain it. Or by heating adipic acid in the existence of barium hydroxide. It is easy to polymerize, especially in the visibility of acid.
