Description

In experiment C2.2.2.1, acetone is produced. To do so, the secondary alcohol 2-propanol is oxidised to 2-propanone (acetone). The oxidising agent used is copper oxide (CuO), which at high temperature gives off oxygen to reducing materials. Continuous air supply immediately re-oxidises the metal copper, however. In order to provide the largest possible Cu-CuO surface area, an anoxidised, rolled up copper mesh is used.
