Acetophenone is used as a raw material in the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients such as dextropropoxyphene and phenylpropanolamine. It is employed in organic synthesis and as a polymerization catalyst for olefins. It is involved in the preparation of styrene, 1-phenylethanol. It is also used as a active component of coatings and inks. It reacts with formaldehyde to prepare resins. Further, it is used in textile coatings, in perfumes for orange blossom odor. In addition to this, it is used as a solvent in plastics, adhesives and a flavoring agent in foods.
