Dear all:

My client enquire whether acetic acid and acetone can be scrubbed together? As far as I know, acetic acid is usually scrubbed by NaOH solution, acetone can be scrubbed by water (I have no experience on acetone). It seems not a good idea to scrub them together.

Can I have any comments and suggestions on this?

Thanks so much in advance.

PS. This is the my first question in this forum. I hope to have some response.

What is concentraion of NaOH?As well as the acatic acid and acetone concentration in the gas stream and flowrates (both liquid and the gas streams) and the terminal condition(P,T)? Please give details of the problem so that we can suggest you some useful idea.
Waiting for your reply.
