Title: Acetone Imine Stability
Post by: doomer_student on October 07, 2021, 09:54:49 AM
Does anyone has any experience working with this substance? Or have concret information on it? I only found useful info in wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acetone_imine , which suggest that this substance is unstable at room temperature. I can't find any primary source that really explains this though; and the journal from which it was sourced was all in German.

There is this graph in the synthesis and reaction section that explains that acetone imine degrades to give a heterocycle. In addition, its preface explain that this compound is mostly of academical interest; with scarce information in the internet despite it being the simplest of imines. This led me to believe that it was probably too unstable to be of any practical use.
