Synthesis route :
Acetophenone is obtained by synthesis in the Hock process, or cumene-phenol process. It is recovered as a by-product of this reaction, by distillation of the reaction medium, having a high boiling point. This process consists in synthesizing phenol from benzene, propylene and oxygen. It is also used to synthesize cumene (by-product) and acetone (final product).
Synthesis precursor :
Acetophenone is used for the synthesis of Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol.
Acetophenone is a constitutional isomer of Phenyl Acetic Aldehyde, which has a rosy and honey smell. These two molecules has a very similar smell.
