HC Deb 25 July 1910 vol 19 c1761

asked the Secretary of State for War whether acetone can be stocked for any length of time without redistillation; and what percentage would be lost in the event of redistillation?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Haldane)

Present experience shows that good acetone can be stored for about ten years without redistillation. On redistillation the loss varies from 3 per cent. to 5 per cent., but is generally nearer the lower figure.
