In a similar manner phorone gives rise to triacetone hydroxylamine, CO :[CH2 C(CH3)2]2:NOH.
Phorone, (CH 3) 2 C:CH CO.
By the action of various reagents such as lime, caustic potash, hydrochloric acid, &c., acetone is converted into condensation products, mesityl oxide C6H10O, phorone C 9 1 14 0, &c., being formed.
Ketones do not polymerize in the same way as aldehydes, but under the influence of acids and bases yield condensation products; thus acetone gives mesityl oxide, phorone and mesitylene (see below).
