  • Isophorone is an organic compound, a colorless to yellowish liquid with characteristic smell, that is used as a solvent and as an intermediate in organic synthesis.
  • Isophorone also occurs naturally in cranberries.

  • Isophorone can be manufactured by catalyzed self-condensation of acetone.
  • Mesityl oxide is the initial product of the self-aldol condensation of acetone.
  • The acetone formed can react further with mesityl oxide via a Michael reaction and subsequent intramolecular aldol condensation to eventually obtain the six-membered ring of isophorone.
