Acetylaceton Formula Diagram (C5H8O2)Acetylacetonate is an organic compound formally named pentane-2, 4-dione. Acetylacetonate is a building block for the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds and is a precursor to acetylacetonate (acac).

Purities include 99%, 99.9%, 99.99%, 99.999% and 99.9999% which are sometimes referred to as 2N, 3N, 4N, 5N and 6N.

Physical properties may include nanopowder, nano particle, submicron, - 325 mesh, rod, foil, and high surface area carbonate with particle distribution and particle size controlled and certified. We produce larger - 40 mesh, - 100 mesh, -200 mesh range sizes and < 0.5 mm, 2 mm, 5 mm and other mm size shot, granules, lump, flake and pieces, too.

American Elements maintains industrial scale production for all its acetylacetonate products.

American Elements will execute Non-Disclosure or Confidentiality Agreements to protect customer know-how.
