One of a large class of organic substances resembling the aldehydes, obtained by the distillation of certain salts of organic acids and consisting of carbonyl (CO) united with two hydrocarbon radicals. In general the ketones are colorless volatile liquids having a pungent ethereal odor.
(key´ tone) • A compound with a C==O group attached to two other groups, neither of which is an H atom. Many sugars are ketones. (Contrast with aldehyde.)
Molecule/ functional group of generic type 2C=O, where R is a carbon chain of some sort. See here for a picture.
An organic compound with a carbonyl group attached to two carbon atoms. Usually indicates a strong, fast evaporating solvent.
An organic compound containing a carbonyl group bonded to two carbon atoms.
Organic molecule containing a carbonyl group linked to two alkyl groups.
(R-CO-R') An organic compound that contains a carbonyl group. For example, methyl ethyl ketone is CH3COCH2CH3_ is used in some adhesives.
an organic compound in which the carbon of the carbonyl group is joined to two other carbons; the general formula is RCOR.
A type of organic compound having a carbonyl functional group (C=O) attached to two alkyl groups. Acetone is the simplest example of a ketone.
any of a class of organic compounds having a carbonyl group linked to a carbon atom in each of two hydrocarbon radicals
a generalization of the aldehyde concept
a perfectly normal byproduct of metabolism
An organic compound containing the carbonyl group, C=O, to which other carbon atoms are attached. Ketones are extremely useful as solvents and paint components. An example is Butanedione.
A class of unsaturated and reactive compounds whose formula is characterized by a carbonyl group to which, two organic groups are attached.
Organic compound characterized by a carbonyl group attached to two carbon atoms, usually contained in hydrocarbon radicals or in a single bivalent radical, similar to an aldehyde but less reactive.
An acidic substance produced during the incomplete metabolism of fatty acids.
An acetone substance, produced in the body from imperfect metabolism of fats.
A compound containing a carbonyl group ( C=O)
Waste product produced when the body is using fat as an energy source. Ketones are acids, and can cause damage or death to cells. Excess ketones accumulate in the blood and are excreted in the urine. Acetone is a ketone which can be eliminated through the lungs. Ketoacidotic animals often have a chemical smell to their breath (Some nail polish removers contain acetone - it is a similar smell).
a compound that has a carbonyl group bonded to two hydrocarbons in organic groups that can be the same or different
Waste products in the body that are a result of fat burning.
One of a class of organic compounds containing the group CO
A ketone is either the functional group characterized by a carbonyl group (O=C) linked to two other carbon atoms or a chemical compound that contains this functional group.
