Recovering and Recycling Low-Boiling Alcohols and Ketones: CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, February 2000

Certain ketones and alcohols do not form hydrogen bonds to each other. These elements may, however, form hydrogen bonds upon contact with water while using the electron lone pairs on oxygen. This is one of the reasons why ketones typically have lower boiling points than alcohols of similar size. Find out more about recovering and recycling low-boiling alcohols and ketones today.
